Representatives of the Vermont Pharmacists Association, Vermont Retail Druggists and Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences gathered, Wednesday, February 19th at the Statehouse in Montpelier. Students from the college performed blood pressure screenings and showcased the educational requirements of earning a PharmD. Members of the two pharmacists groups testified at committee hearings of the House Health Committee and the House Judiciary Committee. Testimony was given for several bills that could potentially impact pharmacists. Legislation that touches on refill synchronization, filling CII prescriptions from out of state doctors, the VPMS, and many other topics were covered. The event ended after the group was formally recognized at a gathering of all the House legislators.
This year marks the fourth time that the Vermont Pharmacists Day has been held at the Statehouse. Our increased presence in Montpelier has helped to raise the awareness of both the profession and the issues facing us and our patients. We look forward to returning in 2015.
