Support OPA’s Pharmacy PAC!

Pharmacists and student pharmacists can strengthen the influence of pharmacy in Ohio’s General Assembly legislative sessions through the OPA Pharmacy Political Action Committee (PAC). Our PAC is your means of informing and educating state legislators about the significance of our profession to the health of Ohio’s citizens. Your contributions will go to help good candidates who support pharmacy.

Attendees of the PAC Breakfast at the Annual Conference heard from Representative Bob Hackett (R-London), the current chair of the Ohio House Insurance Committee. Representative Hackett spoke at length about upcoming changes to the health care system and the insurance industry. He also fielded questions about pharmacy benefit managers and mail order pharmacy.

The event was successful in increasing donations to the OPA Pharmacy PAC. The following pharmacists sponsored one or more students to attend as well:

Raymond Carlson, Joe Craft, Sue Eastman-Wuest, Brian Gerth, Kathy Karas, Shellie Lepuckie, Norbert Manz, Megan Marchal, Jim Pritchard, Andrea Wall, Bob Waters, Robert Wright, Dick Wuest

With health care reform and many important legislative battles this current session, we need your help to attain our goals at the Ohio Statehouse. To contribute to Pharmacy PAC and support our legislative efforts, see our PAC Form.
