Please join us for Pharmacy Student Legislative Day on Tuesday, February 18, 2020. Registration is now OPEN!
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 from 2019, scope of practice expansion, and other critical pharmacy issues.
With last year's attendance including over 250 student pharmacists and faculty members, we anticipate this year's to be even bigger. So register NOW!
There are big pharmacy issues coming up, and we need your help to stand up for pharmacists!

Note: Please remember to wear your lab coats! They make a big impact and help solidify the perception of pharmacists as part of the health care team. Plus they make for great pictures! The photos from last year were fantastic, and we’d like to get even better ones this year.
