Advocating for Independent Community Pharmacies on Federal and State Levels

Drug Topics

To keep their pharmacies viable during this time, pharmacists can continue to advocate on both federal and state levels to address specific issues that would affect them and their patients. During ThoughtSpot 2020, Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s annual independent community pharmacy conference and trade show which is being held virtually this year, Bob Mauch, PharmD, RPh, Executive Vice President and Group President of AmerisourceBergen, and Beth Mitchell, Senior Director of Government Affairs for AmerisourceBergen, talked with Drug Topics® about the importance of advocacy during this time and the legislative priorities that independent pharmacists should keep an eye on for the future.
