  • State Boards of Pharmacy,
  • Joint Commission and other Quality Organizations, and
  • Other healthcare organizations

  • Residencies - Expanding funding for pharmacy residency training
  • Technicians - Achieving standardized education, training, certification, and registration
  • Workforce - Solving the challenges of staffing, credentialing, and leadership
