Join pharmacists, student pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians in face-to-face grassroots advocacy, and help fill our state capitol with white coats! KY Pharmacy Day, sponsored by KPhA, is an opportunity for your voice to be heard. A unified pharmacy front--across all practice settings--serves as a reminder to our state-elected officials that pharmacists put patients first, and they should, too. Let's kickstart our 2023 public policy efforts into high gear and keep pharmacy relevant. Registration closes on February 14.
