The OPhA is your STRONG voice at the Oklahoma State Capitol. We aggressively advocate for the pharmacy profession by shaping public policy and the scope of practice to enhance the value of pharmacy in our state.
Every year bills are introduced in the Oklahoma legislature that impacts our pharmacy practices. Our advocacy efforts include monitoring issues as they develop, attending legislative meetings, connecting with legislators and their staff and more.
Our legislators and regulators are making decisions that affect our profession, income and patients. These decision-makers need to have a reliable source of information to help give them all the facts. OPhA is that source! We have positioned ourselves to be legislators’ first call when a pharmacy bill comes across their desk.
