WASHINGTON, D.C. — Hundreds of community pharmacy executives, pharmacy students and other pharmacy advocates representing 41,000 chain pharmacies took to Capitol Hill from March 13 to 14 for the 5th Annual NACDS RxImpact Day and conducted more than 400 meetings with U.S. senators and representatives. With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2014, the various RxImpact participants hope to share with Congress how community pharmacies can save the nation's healthcare system money.
