October 23: Pharmacist Legislative Day

Registration is open!

Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square and the Ohio Statehouse

There are big pharmacy issues this year: PBM reform, provider status, access to care, Medicaid, and more! We need your help to stand up for pharmacists!

Legislative Day is an advocacy event that allows pharmacists and student pharmacists to meet with legislators to educate them about the value of pharmacists as part of the health care team. You will learn about the latest legislative issues in the Ohio Statehouse, discuss ways to effectively communicate those issues, hear from the legislators themselves, and have a chance to individually visit the offices of legislators. This program will allow you to learn and become involved in the issues impacting Ohio pharmacy practice. We’ll discuss PBM reform, provider status, access to care, Medicaid, and other critical issues.

The Ohio Pharmacists Association, the Ohio Society of Health-System Pharmacists and several of Ohio’s prominent pharmacy buying groups have joined together for this special advocacy day to inform you of crucial legislation impacting pharmacy practice. Pharmacist Legislative Day is designed to develop open dialogue between pharmacists and lawmakers. Be a part of the important process that will shape our profession.
