PMIC Gives $250,000 Challenge Grant Pledge to NCPA Foundation
The NCPA Foundation is pleased to have received a $250,000 challenge grant pledge from Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company (PMIC) to support the foundation’s “Preserving the Legacy of Independent Pharmacy Campaign” to grow the Pruitt-Schutte Student Business Plan Competition endowment to $1 million by 2012. At this level, the endowment fund will support the annual operating expenses of the competition in perpetuity and therefore sustain its long-term viability.

Time Is Running Out—Don’t Delay!
January 31, 2009, is the deadline for your accreditation application. Not meeting this deadline means the accreditation organization pushes your survey to the end of the line.

(NASI), a PRS Pharmacy Services affiliate company, provides a complete, cost-effective Turn-Key Pharmacy Accreditation Program. Groups representing over 15,000 independent pharmacies have contracted with NASI to provide this incredible program to their members. Visit www.prsrxnetwork.com and click on Signup today!
