MEDISCA Supports Improved Patient Care With Donation to IACP's One Fund
In a press release, today, MEDISCA has announced that it is contributing $50,000 to IACP's One Fund Campaign.
"The practice of pharmacy compounding is one that has transformed considerably over the years. Through the efforts of the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP), the industry has benefited from a number of innovative programs and research initiatives, with the ultimate goal focused on the continuous advancement of patient care. MEDISCA recognizes the importance of the IACP and recently has made a donation of $50,000 to the well-established organization.
Last year the IACP established One Fund, a campaign that enables people from all over the world to join in and reinforce the organization's primary objective of supporting the compounding pharmacy industry and ultimately improving patient care. Both MEDISCA and the IACP recognize that compounding pharmacists have the unique opportunity to advance the quality of patient care and help those patients whose medical needs have gone underserved."

About One Fund
Help IACP reach our fundraising goal of $2 million dollars by the end of 2016. This funding allows us to continue our efforts to Fix DQSA and to be ready for the next challenge on the horizon. Through your generosity and support we are shaping the future of compounding.
At Compounders on Capitol Hill this year, IACP President Dale Coker, RPh, FIACP, first issued a personal challenge to our membership and Corporate Sponsors to donate to IACP’s One Fund.
"IACP has a clear goal to be proactive rather than a reactive organization," says Coker. "To accomplish this, it requires capital. We need to replenish our reserves used in defending compounding in the wake of the NECC crisis of 2012. We need to build our war chest for the next coalition that will need to be formed. There are many issues on the horizon, with the Veterinary Compounding Compliance Policy Guide, third party reimbursement and third party credentialing to name a few. We need funding available to act NOW, not after a crisis sets in."

On behalf of the entire IACP Board, Membership and Staff - thank you MEDISCA - for this very generous contribution to IACP. Your support is greatly appreciated.
