This week, the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference named NACDS Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Carol Kelly one of three finalists for an Excellence in Advocacy Award in the Veteran Practitioner category.
[Kelly’s] career span and proven track record are hallmarks of a truly exceptional advocate.
Kelly was nominated for her lifelong commitment to advancing healthcare issues in the best interest of patients and America’s healthcare system. Significantly, Kelly has led advocacy efforts that have allowed pharmacists to administer vaccinations in all 50 states, and for electronic prescriptions to be legal nationwide, which allows patients to access their medications more easily and helps to prevent drug abuse.
Kelly’s legislative efforts have saved billions of dollars in healthcare spending, and her career span and proven track record are hallmarks of a truly exceptional advocate. The awardees will be announced at an event in Washington D.C., in November.
