The National Association of Chain Drug Stores today announced three moves and three executive changes, to advance a pro-patient and pro-pharmacy agenda
NACDS is fully integrating its federal legislative, grassroots, political, and strategic communications functions. The Association also is focused on emphasizing a highly collaborative approach to strategic policy development, federal regulatory and Executive Branch advocacy, and state government affairs.
“NACDS members perform amazing service for people and communities, as the pandemic has shown vividly. Patients and pharmacies need policies that help keep stores open and that do not risk their viability. They need trusted and accessible healthcare professionals to be able to practice at the height of their education. And they need government to build on, and not roll back, the emergency preparedness that has been achieved. NACDS is laser-focused on these realities,” said NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson.
