In August, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) welcomed Kate Ilahi and Whitney Jones, each to the role of director of congressional relations within the government affairs team.
Both women were appointed to the role because of their experience on Capitol Hill to help advance the association’s pro-patient, pro-pharmacy agenda.
In making the announcement, NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson said: “Kate and Whitney will bring tremendous experience and energy to their roles. Kate has advanced healthcare issues vital to vulnerable Americans — issues on which NACDS is highly engaged. Whitney has led a vast legislative and regulatory portfolio in a congressional leadership office setting.”
Here’s a bit of an introduction to Ilahi and Jones.
