Thank you so much for your interest in the 2017 NACDS RxIMPACT Day at Capitol Hill event. Please contact Heidi Ecker at Hecker@nacds.org with questions.
Hundreds will plan to attend this ground-breaking event on March 14-15, 2017 that will bring nearly 400 advocates from across the nation to Washington, DC to educate Members of Congress about the importance of pro-patient, pro-pharmacy policy and key issues related to healthcare reform!
Whether a CEO, CFO, pharmacy operator, pharmacist, pharmacy school Dean, student pharmacist or executive representing front or back end interests, advocates are gearing up to participate in NACDS RxIMPACT Day on Capitol Hill. Please note this event will be hosted on Tuesday and Wednesday and not our typical Wednesday-Thursday. This event reviews the secrets of influential communication, explains how an “issue of the day” impacts the pharmacy community, and provides the unique opportunity to meet with Members of Congress and their staff to discuss important issues.
Your involvement demonstrates the community is dedicated to advancing pharmacy and quality patient services. The more you participate in this annual event, the more Capitol Hill will understand pharmacy and welcome our positions on important health policy issues.
After participating in a morning legislative briefing attended by lawmakers supportive of our industry, advocates who are briefed before the event will be paired with others from their state to attend NACDS RxIMPACT-scheduled meetings with Members of Congress and their staff. Because the mandatory breakfast briefing starts early, participants are encouraged to arrive the night before to participate in the Welcome Dinner.
“It is exciting to participate in the legislative process. Regardless of what you may or may not think, talking about your personal experiences is easy and comfortable and you do have the expertise to participate in this event and meet with your policymakers. What you take away from these meetings could be more important than what you leave behind.”
