Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) reported to his constituents on his meeting, which included NACDS Board Member and former Chairman Bob Narveson, president and CEO of Thrifty White Pharmacy, “Representatives from Thrifty White Pharmacy as well as a student pharmacist visited my Washington office as part of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Day on Capitol Hill. They talked with my staff about a number of issues impacting pharmacies and those they serve in the 7th District, including the pharmacy direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) fees. The group also discussed proposed legislation intended to help address the opioid crisis. It is critical that we support solutions to combat addiction, and I will continue to work to find ways to address this epidemic.”
