Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) participated in an NACDS RxIMPACT pharmacy tour of Meijer on May 28 in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The Meijer pharmacy team in Grand Rapids, Mich., gave Rep. Justin Amash a valuable education in pharmacy services. Jamie Vroman, clinical services pharmacist, said, “I was able to demonstrate the high level of education and professionalism that the retail pharmacy profession encompasses.” Vroman talked about the pharmacy’s point-of-care testing program and their collaboration with physicians that enables them to provide necessary prescriptions following a positive streptococcus or influenza test result. Vroman talked about the pharmacy’s robust vaccination program and patient coaching programs, which are all designed to improve patient outcomes and overall quality of life in an easily accessible location.
