Support the Pharmacist Student Loan Repayment Eligibility Act of 2011

Senators Inouye (D-HI), Begich (D-AK) and Reed (D-RI) introduced the Pharmacist Student Loan Repayment Eligibility Act of 2011 (S.48). This bill would provide for the participation of pharmacists in the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) loan repayment program.

The purpose of this legislation is to increase patient access to patient-centered, team-based health care services for underserved populations. Specifically, this bill recognizes the vital role that clinical pharmacists play on the health care team by providing incentives for pharmacists to participate in the NHSC.

Visit the MPA Legislative Action Center to learn how you can provide support for this legislation.
