The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) has formed a new council to improve the value and significance of the retail pharmacy industry, as well as the interaction between pharmacists and their patients. The NACDS Pharmacy Industry Council (PIC) will provide a forum to identify and address common issues and challenges peculiar to the pharmacy industry, while communicating with the NACDS Board of Directors, council member companies, and other pharmacy organizations and policy makers.
The PIC has 21 associate members and 11 retailers, with 3 subcommittees on the importance of pharmacy, technology, and the supply chain. The leadership will focus on pharmacy issues, encourage member participation, and aid the development of programs that will be beneficial to all NACDS members.
