"You always hear the cliché that time flies when you're having fun”, and that couldn’t be more true for my time spent at the NPA. Although it passed too quick, the experiences I had were unremarkable and truly rewarding to my education and growth as a future pharmacist. I had the opportunity to participate in numerous legislative meetings, including bill introductions and a bill hearing. I watched first-hand as pharmacists advocated for their profession in front of state senators for PBMs to be regulated by encouraging the passing of bill LB375; this experience was unmatched. Aside from attending these meetings, my knowledge about the legislative and governmental processes has only grown. Additionally, I participated in statewide COVID briefing meetings, regular staff meetings, NPA’s board meeting, a Board of Pharmacy meeting, and numerous sponsorship meetings, all of which were incredibly valuable. I was educated on the MEDs Coalition, which lets members of the community dispose of their unused/unwanted medications in participating pharmacies around the state, the narcan program, which supplies registered pharmacies with narcan that they can dispense (without a prescription and free of charge) to anyone who wants it, as well as 340B programs and the benefits they provide. Finally, I got to write a continuing education article regarding insulin pump technologies and their advances to educate pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Marcia, Jenny, Diane, and Amy, thank you for being amazing to work with, being a voice for Nebraska pharmacists, and providing me with tools to have a successful career. You ladies are incredible and it was a pleasure to represent the NPA for my January rotation." Casey Schendt, UNMC PharmD Candidate, NPA Rotation Student
“In a time where pharmacy is seeing huge changes in the ways in which we practice and the legalities that come with it, the NPA has been very helpful to me. The Daily Dose News is full of useful tidbits that are quick to read but informative for a busy schedule. The NPA also gives pharmacy in the state a collective "voice" in the government that we as individuals may not have the time or connections to take advantage of.”
