Pharmacy Advocacy Center

Welcome to the Pharmacy Advocacy Center! We post updates on pharmacy legislation and relevant legal developments both state and federal in this area. Access to this tool is available to independent pharmacies as we recognize that pharmacy needs as much information as they can get in order to adapt faster to a changing environment.

Ron Lanton, who is NPSC’s legal counsel and in-house Advocacy Director, is overseeing this section of our site. Network participants will get alerts on issues that matter. If you have any questions, you can reach Mr. Lanton by phone at (240) 482-6060 or by email
