New NCPA Ad Urges Pro-Pharmacy, Pro-Patient Policies

As the Obama Administration and the new, 113th Congress embark on their 2013 agendas, NCPA is weighing in on behalf of the independent community pharmacies it represents and the patients they serve. Namely, this week NCPA sponsored an advertisement urging support for pro-patient, pro-pharmacist policies.

This week NCPA is running a full-page ad in The Hill newspaper. The publication covers Congress and is closely read by lawmakers and their aides. The ad focuses on the important contributions made by community pharmacies to patient care and local economies through the jobs that they create in each state, and also details our legislative agenda for the 113th Congress.

Specifically, the ad asks Congress to:

Pharmacists: save the date for the 45th Annual NCPA Conference on National Legislation and Government Affairs May 7-8 on Capitol Hill. It’s independent community pharmacy’s best opportunity to educate U.S. Senators, Representatives and staff about the critical role that local pharmacists play to improve health care outcomes and reduce costs and gain support for the aforementioned policy priorities.

Event registration will open in the next few weeks. Read more about the 2012 conference here. Pictures from the event are also online.
