H-E-B, Thrifty White recognized for political involvement at NACDS TSE

BOSTON — H-E-B and Thrify White Pharmacy were recognized for their political advocacy and grassroots support at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Political Involvement Reception during the NACDS Total Store Expo in Boston.  

NACDS chain member H-E-B received the NACDS RxImpact “Leader of the Year” award for its engagement in numerous NACDS RxImpact events. Thrifty White Pharamcy was honored with the NACDS Political Action Committee “Politically Engaged Pharmacy” award in recognition of exceptional commitment to advancing pharmacy through the NACDS-PAC.

“Political and grassroots involvement is so vital for pharmacy to succeed in public policy,” NACDS president and CEO Steven Anderson, IOM, CAE stated.  “We congratulate H-E-B and Thrifty White for their commitment to the NACDS RxImpact program and the NACDS-PAC. Everything we do on behalf of the chain pharmacy industry is done to reinforce our theme of pharmacy being the face of neighborhood healthcare, and these two companies do so much to convey that important message.”    

The NACDS RxImpact grassroots program was launched to further advance pro-patient, pro-pharmacy policies. The program’s many facets — including the NACDS RxImpact Day on Capitol Hill meetings with policymakers in Washington and NACDS RxImpact pharmacy tours bringing members of Congress into pharmacies in their states and districts — are just some of the opportunities to help engage policymakers about the value of pharmacy in improving healthcare delivery, NACDS stated.
