Student Legislative Day
Student Pharmacy Legislative Day has reached capacity and online registration is no longer available. To be placed on a waiting list, please call the OPA office at 614-389-3236.
The Ohio Pharmacists Association and the Ohio Colleges of Pharmacy have joined together for this special advocacy day to inform you of crucial legislation impacting pharmacy practice. Pharmacy Student Legislative Day is designed to develop open dialogue between student pharmacists and lawmakers.
Be a part of the important process that will shape our profession.
Student Legislative Day is an advocacy event that allows student pharmacists to meet with legislators to educate them about the value of pharmacists in the world of health care. You will learn about the latest legislative issues in the Ohio Statehouse, learn how to effectively communicate those issues, hear from the legislators themselves, and have a chance to individually visit the offices of legislators. This program will allow you to learn and become involved in the issues impacting Ohio pharmacy practice. We’ll discuss audit legislation, proposed changes in the immunization law, modifications to the consult agreement, and other critical issues.
There are big pharmacy issues coming up: expanding immunizations, emergency dispensing, PBM audits, consult agreements and more!
We need your help to stand up for pharmacists!
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Sheraton Columbus at Capitol Square, 75 E. State St., Columbus, 43215.
