Younger, from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, will explore current trends in drug enforcement in Kansas and other states, including pharmacy burglaries. This session will focus on opioids and will cover trends in other areas that are impacting Kansas. In addition, he will give tips and tactics on how to better secure pharmacy buildings and what to do during and after a burglary.
On Saturday, Sept. 28, Alexandra Blasi will provide the annual Kansas Board of Pharmacy Law Update.
