The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee meeting scheduled for Wednesday, July 20 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. will be held on a virtual internet platform instead of in-person as previously announced. Changes made to the Government Code by Senate Bill 189 (Statutes 2022, Chapter 48) allow public meetings to be conducted virtually through June 30, 2023.

The meeting is open to the public. To attend the meeting via video conference, please use the P&T Meeting Link. To join the meeting via teleconference, please use the call-in phone number: 1 (619) 407-9860, and enter phone conference ID: 266539444#
