Thank you, Corporate Partner PCCA, for generously supporting IACP at your 35th Annual International Seminar last week!

Fun was had by all and monies were raised for IACP to help protect pharmacy compounding and patient access to the personalized medications they need!

Special thanks to IACP Member and former Board Member Lucy Malmberg, RPh, FACA, FACVP, Wedgewood Pharmacy, who donated $70,000 of the more than $85,000 raised in honor of her late husband and Wedgewood Pharmacy co-founder George Malmberg, RPh, FACA, FACVP.

IACP is making real progress through our DQSA Coalition as well as your efforts in educating your respective congressional representatives. We have a lot more before us! Keeping IACP and pharmacy compounding top of mind on Capitol Hill is an ongoing challenge and a considerable investment. There’s an old saying in D.C. –“if you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re on the menu.”
On average, IACP spends $1,000 a day just in lobbying and regulatory surveillance. And, when you consider the legislative/regulatory environment of the last several years – this investment has become even more critical and costly. Click here to view a few of our milestones.
Would You be Willing to Contribute to IACP’s One Fund? Please help us maintain the momentum by contributing today. Your support will allow us to represent your pharmacy’s and your patients’ issues on the Hill! Click here to contribute.
