PSHP Members, 

Join us in Harrisburg on Wednesday, September 25, for our 2019 Legislative Day!

If you plan to attend, please:

  • If you plan to meet with your own senator or representative, please contact their Harrisburg office or stop by their local office to schedule a meeting on the 25th. Meeting with staff members, especially for senators, is likely.
  • Those who have registered by Friday morning, will receive additional details on issues and related material. We will also inform you of sessions scheduled with legislators and PSHP leadership

We will be advocating for several pieces of legislation, especially HB770 - the House passed bill for technician registration and related requirements. The bill now must be passed by the Senate. Click here to review the PSHP Talking Points on HB770. You can also read about the bill and its history here

To aid in this effort we will be joined by Chris Jerry, through the Emily Jerry Foundation he established after the death of his daughter due to a compounding error. He has become a national advocate for advancing medication safety with a particular focus on state oversight of technicians including training and competency standards.

More details on the bill from PSHP member Chuck DiTrapano, who is also a Board Member of the Emily Jerry Foundation, and information on how PSHP is making a difference in Harrisburg can be found online here.  

If you cannot join us on September 25, we encourage you to visit your Pennsylvania legislators in their local office. We have a lot of educating to do about the practice of pharmacy and the roles of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in hospitals and health systems.
