The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association will be hosting its annual Legislative Day in Harrisburg on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. Attend and you will have the chance to meet and talk with Pennsylvania’s Representatives and Senators about the issues that affect you as a pharmacist and/or small business owner and that will impact the patients you serve. These issues will include:

 

PBM Regulation & Transparency

 

Fair Pharmacy Audits

 

Expanded Immunization Opportunities

 

Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy students are all encouraged to attend and schedule appointments with their Representatives and Senators. PPA will host briefing calls, provide background information and talking points on our issues, directions and much more. Check this webpage frequently as we will make continuous updates, especially closer to the date when we know exactly which issues to advocate for and where they are in the legislative process. It is extremely important that you make an effort to attend!

 

Additionally, the Pennsylvania Schools of Pharmacy will have displays showcasing information on the value pharmacists provide and perform various health related screenings. Information on Medication Therapy Management (MTM), diabetes, immunizations, hypertension and other services offered by pharmacists have been included in their displays in the East Ring Rotunda during past Legislative Days. PPA also will arrange for group tours of the Capitol for students. Others may join the tours upon request and with space permitting.

 

Pharmacists are responsible for scheduling appointments with their legislators. However, we strongly encourage small groups from counties to coordinate these appointments and go together for maximum impact. PPA will work to match students with pharmacists experienced in meeting with legislators so that students may again valuable experience. Once you have scheduled a visit, please contact Don Smith at dsmith@papharmacists.com with your arrangements.
