Join Us in the Fight4Rx

March 01, 2009

(As appeared in Pharmacy Times by Bruce T. Roberts, RPh, NCPA Executive Vice President and CEO)

On February 1st, NCPA launched the Fight4Rx campaign (www.fight4rx.org) to educate patients about the value of community pharmacy, and to recruit them as activists for the protection of community pharmacy in Congress during the health care reform debate.

Patient involvement in key pharmacy issues is critical to the success of community pharmacy in Congress this year. As a vital component of the health care delivery system, community pharmacy must have a seat at the health care reform table. Fight4Rx is the grassroots campaign that will help us achieve key legislative victories that will allow pharmacists to continue to provide patients access to safe and affordable medicine and services.

To date, over 1,000 pharmacies across the country are participating in the campaign, signing up patients for our monthly e-mail newsletter everyday. Signing up your patients is simple and easy to do. Go towww.fight4Rx.org, click the logo and print off copies of our newsletter sign up form. Then ask your patients when they are in your pharmacy to fill out the form. As you receive these sign up forms, fax them back to NCPA at (703) 683-3619. That is all you need to do help make this campaign a success.

Participating in the Fight4Rx campaign will help your business and profession have a voice in this year's health care reform debate which could impact community pharmacies for years to come. Start signing up your patients today! For more information, contact us at Fight4Rx at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
