Legislative Day March 30, 2021

Virtual Event

Join MPA and pharmacists throughout Missouri on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 (virtually) as we advocate to strengthen our profession.

With uncertainty regarding the ability of large groups to gather at the Capitol this year, MPA will transition to virtual programming and grassroots efforts. This will include guest speakers and legislative updates on March 30th (originally scheduled Legislative Day) and a virtual grassroots push to engage legislators. Join your fellow pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists while participating in education sessions and bipartisan discussions centered around healthcare policy. Participate in the most effective way to protect the future of the pharmacy profession.

PROGRAM DETAILS:
When:         March 30, 2021
