Pharmacy Tour Reaches Communities

OCTOBER 01, 2005

McKesson Corp's Health Across America: Keeping Pharmacy Care Personal 23-city bus tour was a success. The tour's purpose was to raise awareness of the vital role community pharmacists play in the health of Americans. Here are highlights from the tour:

  • The tour gathered 68,238 signatures for the "Keeping Pharmacy Care Personal Petition;" the petition is to demonstrate to policy makers the need to preserve every individual's access to community pharmacists
  • More than 3500 community pharmacists received Pharmacy Advocacy Toolkits to help promote their value in their communities
  • 830 participants took advantage of the free health screenings
  • Nominations from the National Community Pharmacists Association and the American Pharmacists Association resulted in a total of $23,000 in scholarships being awarded to 28 pharmacy students
