Student Pharmacist Legislative Day

Ohio Pharmacists Association Pharmacy Student Legislative Day is an advocacy event that affords student pharmacists the opportunity to meet with legislators to educate them about pharmacy-related issues and the value of the pharmacist. You will learn about the latest legislative issues in the Ohio Statehouse, how to effectively communicate those issues, hear from the legislators themselves, and have a chance to visit with your legislator. This program will allow you to become involved in the issues impacting Ohio pharmacy practice. We’ll discuss new pharmacist-payment models, Medicaid issues, PBM reform, new laws and rules, scope of practice expansion, and other critical pharmacy issues.
