ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Jan. 19, 2023) – Registration is now open for the National Community Pharmacists Association’s 2023 Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In, taking place April 26-27 in Alexandria, Va., and Washington, D.C. While independent pharmacy owners and their teams completed dozens of visits with policymakers and their staff in a 2022 Month of Action initiative, NCPA is pleased to welcome its members to attend its first in-person fly-in since April 2019, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the NCPA Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In, community pharmacists will be able to talk with policymakers about the important role independent pharmacies play in their communities, the many ways that pharmacy teams help patients, and challenges facing the industry. In addition to helping foster existing relationships, it’s an opportunity to build rapport with those new to Congress who are now making decisions central to the future of pharmacy.
Before heading to Capitol Hill, NCPA staff will be updating attendees on the congressional agenda for 2023 and the association’s ongoing advocacy efforts, which include working to stop unfair practices of pharmacy benefit managers and protecting and expanding patient access to community pharmacy services.
