This is a great opportunity for pharmacists and pharmacy owners in Iowa to lay the groundwork for meaningful federal legislation in Congress. Hosting a member of Congress presents a perfect opportunity to build relationships with policymakers, showcase the operations of Iowa's pharmacies, and provide a firsthand view of the critical role pharmacy plays in the health of Iowa communities.
 

The presidential caucus season provides many opportunities to interact with candidates and current legislators. Visit IPA's website for more information on contacting and hosting your member of Congress, as well as the latest list of town hall events across the state. Learn more about the ‘Month of Action' and relevant federal legislation from NCPA and ASHP.
 
Please contact IPA's Director of Public Affairs, Seth Brown, at sbrown@iarx.org if you are interested in hosting your member of Congress. IPA can assist every step of the way in setting up your visit—and attending if feasible.
 
Let's “turn up the heat!”
