National Campaign to Educate Public on Pharmacist's Role

The NPA has joined Pharmacists for Healthier Lives – a coalition of national and state pharmacy organizations coming together in a coordinated effort to raise the collective profile of the pharmacy profession. The coalition, led by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, has created a national awareness campaign to highlight the important role of pharmacists in helping people live their healthiest, happiest lives.

The NPA Board of Directors approved financial and promotional support for the campaign as it aligns with the association's strategic plan to enhance public perception and awareness regarding the value of the pharmacy profession and its role in the healthcare team.
