Commitment from the Council

I truly began thinking about it when I was a student, but it has been solidified since becoming a pharmacist. I believe that OPhA gives us a voice and a vehicle that we can use together as a group of pharmacists to really promote pro-pharmacy issues. We constantly see in the news how other organizations are trying to impede upon our scope of practice. Just this year, for example, nurse practitioners tried to pass a bill in Oklahoma to give them dispensing rights. OPhA unites us to protect our future and the next generation of pharmacists.
