Screen_Shot_2015-03-16_at_9.33.55_AM.pngMPhA is the voice for pharmacy in the federal government and United States Congress as well as the Mississippi executive office and legislature. We have a Government Affairs committee, which introduces legislation in support of pharmacy and testifies against legislation in opposition of pharmacy. Each legislative session we maintain a constant watch at the Capitol to make sure your voice is heard.

MPhA currently has four members who also serve as legislators including Rep. Forrest Hamilton, Rep. Bobby Howell, Rep. John Read, and Rep. Nolan Mettetal.  MPhA’s members interests are well represented in all aspects of government.   Every year we IMG_4121.JPGspend a day at the capitol for our members to visit with legislative leaders.
