As a student pharmacist, you recognize the value of community. You aren't just earning a degree. You're building trust, cultivating relationships, and learning how to improve the lives of people you care about with each lecture you attend and shift you pull at the pharmacy.
At NCPA, we're about building a community. As America's community pharmacy association, we bring student pharmacists together to shape good ideas into best practices and to turn challenges into innovations.
Dispose My Meds
Dispose My Meds, presented by the NCPA Foundation, provides members with a valuable service that their patients want, which may result in increased foot traffic, new patients, and marketing opportunities for the pharmacy. In fact, past medication return programs around the country have found that as many as 40-49 percent of customers returning medications for disposal were from other pharmacies, presenting a tremendous opportunity for customer conversion while making a difference for your community with a safe solution to improper drug disposal and potential drug misuse.
