CMSA at Pharmacy Bill Signing Ceremony
June 12, 2017 - Purdue Pharmacy faculty, students, and alumni are making a difference in the State of Indiana. Last week, Gov. Eric Holcomb had a bill signing ceremony for HB 1540, the Pharmacy Modernization Bill. This bill is transformational in many regards. The 2017 legislative session also included high-impact pharmacy bills for the expansion of immunizations per SB 51, electronic prior authorization per SB 73, and for epinephrine and other emergency medications per SB 392.
John Hertig serves as one of the Indiana Pharmacists Alliance Legislative and Regulatory Council co-chairs along with Gloria Sachdev and worked to move along these important reforms to pharmacy practice. CMSA would also like to recognize the hard work of Karen Hudmon, as well as Rep. Steve Davisson and Sen. Ron Grooms for their leadership and support of these advancements.
