NHPA co-sponsors a lunch for our legislators!
prepared by Candace Heath, 2017 PharmD candidate
On April 4, 2017, the pharmacy associations in NH (NHPA, NHSHP and NHiPA) co-sponsored a luncheon for our NH legislators at Tandy’s in Concord, NH. The overall goal of this event was to inform our Senators and members of the House of Representatives of the value that pharmacists have in different practice settings. During this presentation, the legislators were educated on the overall objectives and missions of three pharmacy associations. Board members from the pharmacy associations gave a presentation to the legislators on how the educational requirements for pharmacy have evolved over the last 15 years. The evolution of pharmacy practice from a “lick, stick and pour” activity to involvement in patient care activities, such as disease state management was also highlighted. A Q&A session followed the presentation, many of the legislators had great questions about our profession. The event was extremely successful and we hope that we can continue to educate our community on the importance of pharmacists in today’s society. We look forward to hosting this event each year!
