WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, Congressman Doug Collins led a Special Order hour on the House floor to speak about the vital role community pharmacies and pharmacists play in health care and this country’s economy. In rural Northeast Georgia, people often see their pharmacist for important healthcare advice and support, sometimes more often than they see their doctor. Most community pharmacies are small businesses, locally owned and operated.
“It’s the local pharmacist who knows your name. It’s the local pharmacist who sponsors your child’s soccer team. They are the ones who open up in the middle of the night, who explain how to use your medication, who celebrate the birth of the youngest member of your family and who are there to grieve with you at the passing of the oldest.”
