Here in New York City Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists we have a Grassroots Advocacy Committee, set up by President Karen Berger, which is helping to connect with their legislators.
Thanks to Cye Cornelio for leading the conversation with her representative, Assemblymember Shelley Mayer, about legislation for Pharmacy Technician Registration/Certification.
Did you know that New York is one of only 5 states which does not regulate Pharmacy Technicians? We Pharmacists rely on the great work of Pharmacy Technicians to help us prepare and dispense medications. We need good Techs to support good patient care!
If you want to meet with your legislator about this and other important Pharmacy issues, let us know!
