The National Pharmaceutical Association (NPhA) is a national, professional organization of pharmacists founded by Dr. Chauncey I. Cooper. Established in 1947, NPhA is dedicated to representing the views and ideals of minority pharmacists on critical issues affecting healthcare and pharmacy, promoting racial and health equity, and advancing the standards of pharmaceutical care among all practitioners. NPhA’s goal is to increase the number of minority pharmacists who are active in organized pharmacy, to raise money to provide scholarship support for pharmacy students who are active members of the Student National Pharmaceutical Association and be a strong voice on issues affecting minority pharmacists and underserved communities. Learn more: https://nationalpharmaceuticalassociation.org/


Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition was established in 2014 as a non-profit advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C., to represent the interests of the nation’s long-term care pharmacies (LTC). These pharmacies play an essential role in our health care system—one that is significantly different from and often more complex than that of a typical retail pharmacy. SCPC represents 300 long-term care pharmacies across the country who collectively serve more than one million people who need long-term care every day. These patients reside in long-term care facilities, assisted living communities, and at home. The mission of SCPC is to ensure lawmakers, regulators and other decisionmakers understand the distinct, essential role of LTC pharmacies in delivering essential patient care services and improving health outcomes among one of our nation’s most vulnerable populations. Learn more: www.seniorcarepharmacies.org
