Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA, second from right) had an informative, hour-long tour of Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company, in Savannah, Ga., this week.

In addition to participating in an NACDS RxIMPACT pharmacy tour, Carter also penned an article this week in The Hill supporting provider status legislation. Carter, the only pharmacist serving in Congress, wrote, “In the more than thirty years I have practiced pharmacy, I have witnessed a tremendous evolution in the profession. The clinical foundation and training of a pharmacist graduating today is leaps and bounds above where I started my practice. However, one thing has not changed:  a pharmacists’ role in patient care goes well beyond dispensing medications.”
