In this virtual forum, Dr. Lawrence J. Cohen and Dr. Larry Ereshefsky will provide the pharmacist’s perspective on the current challenges and roles of pharmacists in treating schizophrenia, identify important considerations in monitoring metabolic wellness, and review new and emerging research in treating schizophrenia. The virtual forum will conclude with time for questions from the audience.
