The Day

ASCP’s Virtual Lobby Day is a coordinated effort to have ASCP members and other healthcare professionals from around the United States send online messages to their senators and representatives on the same day, to educate them about the important role consultant pharmacists play in the ongoing efforts to improve the American health care system. It will take place on October 17, 2013, as part of Consultant Pharmacist Week.

By committing to email, phone, fax, tweet, and otherwise distribute your message to Congress on October 17, you are helping to raise the profile of ASCP and pharmacists in Washington, DC without ever leaving your hometown.
