2020 was a year many of us would like to forget, but that’s impossible; its changes are irrevocable. APhA has a proud history of supporting pharmacists and advancing pharmacy practice. In 2020, we sped forward as the world caught fire, and the paths we once tread are shrinking in our rearview mirror. This was the first year of a new era for pharmacy.

My statement on the presidential election

I want to share with you my statement on the presidential election. APhA will continue to inform you on our advocacy work before and after the inauguration.

The statement:

“The American Pharmacists Association welcomes the opportunity to work with the new administration and the 117th Congress to continue recognizing pharmacists as medical experts providing patient care. Chief among these are efforts to secure pharmacist provider status for Medicare coverage, and advocating for fundamental payment reform for pharmacists’ services.
