As the National Association of Chain Drug Stores has worked the past five years to tell the story of community pharmacies nationwide, CEO Steven C. Anderson told a group gathered in Denver that the industry has been able to showcase its “resurgence.”
Speaking at the NACDS Pharmacy and Technology Conference on Monday, Anderson said the organization was seeing victories in public perception that are tied to victories in public policy for the industry.
“Effectiveness in communicating pharmacy’s value reflects a resurgence across pharmacy, a rising up, a commitment to tell pharmacy’s story and to demand a response,” Anderson said, according to an NACDS news release. “We are done talking to ourselves within the pharmacy community. We are done preaching to the choir. We are reaching out to elected officials, to the media, to healthcare partners, to employers, to patients, to those who have a say and a stake in the way patients get their care in the USA.”
Anderson asked listeners to step up their involvement with the organization as it will celebrate its 80thanniversary in 2013.
“Leadership within pharmacy is an opportunity open to each, and a responsibility demand of all,” he said. “And more and more of your are answering that call than ever before.”
