The annual California Pharmacy Legislative Day is a collaboration between the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) and California Pharmacists Association (CPhA). This important grassroots effort will provide insights and information related to legislation affecting pharmacists who work in all practice settings. Pharmacists will receive an update on legislative measures that have been introduced in the 2019 legislative cycle as well as hear from legislators who hold key leadership positions in the capitol.
In addition, attendees will have an appointment with a legislator or their staff to share the important work that pharmacists perform on behalf of their patients. Attendees will receive an in-depth briefing and written resources to prepare for these conversations.
