Welcome, Institute members!
Launched in April 2019 and with over 1200 members, the GTMRx Institute is off and running with a range of activities to share timely, relevant content and facilitate dialogue to help ensure we can get the medications right for every person, every time.
An important part of our work is making sure it’s easy for our members to stay informed on what we’re doing and to take advantage of learning and collaboration opportunities.
Here you’ll find our “Focus On Communications” member updates. We hope you find this information helpful and invite you to visit each month to get the latest on these important efforts.
