Here are three pieces of legislation that will impact community pharmacies.
Organizations like the APhA and NCPA are great resources for the latest news in healthcare, politics and the pharmaceutical industry. As you work each day in your own business, don’t become too myopic. Keep an eye on the big picture of what’s going on in the industry.
Get to know your legislators at the state and national levels, and make a plan to keep in regular contact with them. Donate to organizations and political action committees (PACs) that are working to represent your interests as a community pharmacist.
Make the most of every opportunity to network with your peers and industry experts
Never underestimate the power individuals can have when they work together for a common goal.
