Storm the Hill with Your Colleagues in Washington, DC and Share Your Patients' Voices with Capitol Hill to Preserve Patient Access to Compounded Medications!
IACP's Governmental Affairs team, working closely with 30+ organizations comprising the DQSA Coalition, has made tremendous progress in the past year towards policy changes at the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in order to preserve patient access to compounded medications. 

Changes include:
  • The introduction of bipartisan legislation 
  • Testifying at a Congressional hearing on patient access concerns resulting from FDA's implementation of the DQSA
  • Obtaining Congressional letters instructing FDA on how the Agency continues to prohibit patient access to vital compounded medications by not implementing the DQSA as Congress intended
  • Obtaining language within Congressional funding legislation
  • Hosting a Congressional staff briefing with physicians and pharmacists that shared their patient stories and access concerns
We need hundreds of compounding pharmacists on Capitol Hill, May 21, 2019 to educate Members of Congress about FDA's overreach and to rally our congressional champions to protect patient access to compounded medications and your ability to practice pharmacy.
Please consider joining IACP and your pharmacy peers in Washington, D.C. for the 25th Annual Compounders on Capitol Hill, May 18-21, 2019 to walk the halls of Congress to protect your patients and your profession.
