2022 Virtual Pharmacy Legislative Day

January 19, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


VPhA has made the difficult decision to transition pharmacy day to a virtual event. With COVID cases rising we understand the importance of staying close to home and supporting your patients. We still need your voice and attendance for virtual advocacy.

Registration is NOW closed!

VPhA’s annual Pharmacy Legislative Day is the cornerstone of the association’s legislative and public policy efforts. This year’s event will transition to virtual programming and grassroots efforts – making it even easier for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists to play a key role in influencing important legislation!

Space is no longer limited. This is a virtual event.

How to Participate:

  • Register – it’s FREE for VPhA members and students, $40 for non-members
  • Clear your calendar on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 to engage in the Zoom programming and legislative briefing.
  • Plan to email or call your state senator and state representative the same day
  • Let us know who you contacted!
