RxImpact Day set for June 17

June 8th, 2009

WASHINGTON – On June 17 members of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores will make the case for community pharmacy in a series of meetings with senators and congressmen on Capitol Hill.

The coordinated lobbying effort, known as NACDS RxImpact Day on Capitol Hill, will enable policy makers to hear firsthand from more than 100 chain pharmacy executives and the professionals who work in the stores about the importance of what they do in keeping health care costs down and promoting patient health.

Educators and state pharmacy association executives will supplement their ranks.

“What we’re trying to do is target in on key members of Congress who are really going to make a difference in health care reform,” says Carol Kelly, NACDS’ senior vice president of government affairs and public policy. “We anticipate having meetings with approximately 160 congressional offices.”
