Each legislative year Pharmacy Day at the Texas Capitol brings hundreds of pharmacy professionals together to make their voices heard — Your Voice is Vital! It’s a chance to meet legislators, network, and contribute to promoting and advancing your profession — Your Innovation is Impactful!

Pharmacy Day at the Texas Capitol will include a breakfast briefing hearing from legislators and reviewing talking points for key pharmacy issues, and then pharmacy professionals will attend meetings with legislators and staff to educate them on the issues and how they impact pharmacy and patient outcomes. We want to blanket the Capitol with white coats demonstrating pharmacy is politically viable and a force to be reckoned — Your Participation is Powerful!

The Texas Pharmacy Summit representing eight Texas pharmacy organizations will be hosting the event.
