Invite your member of Congress to work

When your members of Congress are home in their district, it’s a perfect time for you to host them at your pharmacy. Pharmacy visits allow them to see what you do and how you do it, and you can brief them on the challenges compounders are facing. It’s as easy as calling your Congressperson’s district office and scheduling a date. And without a doubt it’s the very best way to educate elected officials on compounding policy priorities.

APC has made it easy for you to plan a pharmacy visit with your member of Congress. Take a look at our handy how-to guide, then contact scott@a4pc.org for assistance!
