Make the Difference
The world of pharmacy is changing and in order for us to move it in the direction of our choosing, we have to be at the forefront of the issues. There is no better way to be at the forefront than to build and grow relationships with the leaders of Missouri, to be educated about the issues, and to be willing to make the difference.
MPA’s Legislative Day is an opportunity for you to make the difference. Legislators and pharmacy professionals will present updates on the issues impacting pharmacy in the morning, and the afternoon provides opportunities for attendees to meet with their legislators. Share stories of what you do, talk about the impact pending legislation will have on your business/profession, and take your legislator to the rotunda to enjoy a sweet treat, all while building that necessary relationship.
Make the difference in one more way, by agreeing to allow pharmacy students to shadow you during your time at the Capitol. Your time speaking with the students and allowing them to shadow you is invaluable to them and the profession.
