"Community Pharmacists Deserve Support of All Americans"

 

Washington, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, rallied hundreds of pharmacy leaders at the National Community Pharmacists Association Rally on Capitol Hill today.

"I’m proud to stand with our nation’s community pharmacists who are on the frontlines every day delivering quality, affordable health care to millions of Americans," said Rep. McMorris Rodgers. "Community pharmacists are a major stakeholder in America’s health care system, and they have a right to be heard when it comes to legislation that affects them. Federal policies should be geared to supporting community pharmacists; not undermining them."

As a Member of Congress, Rep. McMorris Rodgers has worked to preserve access to independent community pharmacies. Often times, community pharmacists are the sole provider of medical advice in our rural communities. To give them a voice in Congress, last year Rep. McMorris Rodgers co-founded the Congressional Community Pharmacy Coalition. This bipartisan group of House Members has been very successful in acting as a clearinghouse of ideas and information on issues pertaining to community pharmacies and their customers.

The National Community Pharmacy Association (NCPA) represents the nation's community pharmacists, including the owners of 23,000 pharmacies, over 65,000 pharmacists, and over 250,000 employees.
