Advocacy Day 2023

March 8 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Please join the California Pharmacists Association (CPhA) and the United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals (UNAC/UHCP) for our annual Advocacy Day on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 from 11 am – 3 pm.

This important grassroots event will provide insight and information related to legislation affecting the profession of pharmacy. You will also have the opportunity to hear from legislative leaders and earn 1 hour of CE credit.

CPhA & UNAC/UHCP have partnered together on many legislative issues supporting and defending pharmacists. We are committed to working together to continue to advance the pharmacy profession and ensure that pharmacists are able to provide care to their patients without corporate interference. Our collaborative efforts have resulted in positive outcomes for our respective members; let’s continue to advocate together in support of pharmacists in all practice settings.

All attendees are advised to bring your white coat to wear during the event.
