WASHINGTON — Advocacy on behalf of pharmacy at the state level has won recognition from the National Association of Chain Drug Stores for a pharmacy school in West Virginia.
The NACDS said it gave its RxImpact “U” Advocacy Award to students Katrina Thompson and John Hudson from the University of Charleston School of Pharmacy for their leadership in organizing student participation in a Pharmacist’s Legislative Day at the West Virginia State Capitol.
“NACDS RxImpact ‘U’ was developed to engage the next generation of pharmacy — pharmacy school students — in grassroots advocacy,” NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson said. “Katrina and John have demonstrated a commitment to telling pharmacy’s story, and serve as fine examples for other advocates participating in NACDS RxImpact Day on Capitol Hill.”
