Scot made it to Washington D.C.! Stay tuned for updates and marketing tips throughout the conference! Can’t attend Compounders on Capitol Hill in person? No worries! This year, IACP is using technology to put you right there in those marbled hallways and on the Capitol steps… at least virtually. Our unique Action Alert system lets you send a personalized, IACP prepared request for support directly from your home or pharmacy straight to the offices of both your Representative and your Senator.

Watch your in-box on Sunday, June 24, 2012 for information and links on how to send a message to Capitol Hill. It takes just a few minutes and can literally quadruple the number of compounding pharmacist voices ringing through the halls of Congress!

 

Scot here – the final stretch! I have to admit that this was the hardest day of driving so forgive me for not having my usual pep. But the information is good! In fact, I’ve got a few more opportunities to review your marketing plan. Visit http://100startup.com/#resources and download the one page marketing plan. Fill it out and the first five people that send it to me at SMaitland@PMQuarterly.com will have it reviewed for free and get a 15 minute call to discuss. But hurry – it’s only for the first 5 people!

Capsuls

There’s a new proposal working it’s way through the FDA the “new paradigm.” If you’re not familiar with it, it would create a third tier of drugs. There would be:

  1. available with a prescription
  2. available as an OTC
  3. and now available over the counter for certain conditions, after a consultation with a pharmacist.

It’s no surprise that the American Medical Association is up in arms about this. In fact, they are voting this coming week whether to adopt a policy opposing the FDA’s proposal. But already in states like Tennessee pharmacists can write prescriptions for OTC medications. For more on the subject, CLICK HERE.

Scot here – It’s day two. Spent a great evening with friends in New Orleans and now headed to visit Nashville and see Ashley Dick from Pharmacare Compounding Solutions.

Along the way I’m listening to some audiobooks like ReWork and The $100 Startup and I present a challenge to you. Visit http://100startup.com/#resources and download the one page marketing plan.
