Program Description

The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) is delighted to extend an invitation to our upcoming webinar, which promises to be an enlightening exploration of the intersection between mental health and rare diseases. 

The webinar will feature key insights derived from a recent Market Insights roundtable discussion hosted by AMCP, where experts and thought leaders gathered to address the often-overlooked connection between mental health and rare diseases. Our esteemed panelists delved into the challenges faced by individuals coping with rare diseases, explored the impact on their mental well-being, and discussed strategies to improve holistic patient care. 

Speakers will share key insights and findings from the roundtable discussion surrounding the challenges facing managed care organizations in meeting the mental health needs of their plan members and potential opportunities to partner with providers to improve access and outcomes.
