APC’s Stateside Coalition
Join our coalition of compounders who’ve volunteered to be APC’s eyes and ears and voice at their state’s board of pharmacy meetings. We’re working to have coverage in all 50 states, with at least three volunteers in each state to share the duties and assure consistent coverage of meetings.
When we know what’s going on in your state, we can prepare you with information and talking points to effectively represent your profession.
