Make Health Care Reform Work for You and Your Patients!

Please note this year’s schedule: The conference begins at noon on Monday, May 11, and concludes with a pharmacist rally on Wednesday morning, May 13. The Congressional Reception is now Tuesday evening. Get involved! Register today!

Discounts on Employee Background Screening
If you are seeking DME accreditation and the accrediting organization recommends background screening for staff, remember that NCPA offers exclusive members discounts on employee background screening services from the investigative consultants firm of Pedersen & Associates.

NCPA Members Forum Series
Have you missed the NCPA Members Forum Series? To date, nearly 500 pharmacists have dialed in to the new members–only live discussions on DME accreditation, small business tax provisions, pharmacy security, health information technology, and the new NCPA Prescription Disposal Program. For more information about recordings and materials from previous calls, e-mail Valerie Briggs.
