Thank you for providing hand sanitizer to first responders, healthcare organizations, and customers.

Here are just a couple of the many stories about compounding pharmacies helping communities that have experienced hand sanitizer shortages:

  • Ensuring Safe Social Distancing 

Independent pharmacies across the globe are uniquely positioned to adapt their practices to meet the evolving needs of their patients.

NCPA has collected a gallery of measures pharmacies have been taking to ensure safe distancing in store (and curbside), including signage, rearranging displays, and more.

A pharmacy in Quebec ran an experiment to see if their safety procedures would help prevent the spread of COVID-19. You can watch their video on receiving and dispensing scripts.

  • Advocating for the Compounding Industry 

APC (formerly IACP), along with NCPA and APhA, have been working hard to act as a voice for compounding pharmacists with the FDA and other authorities. Follow APC on social media for the latest updates, or check out the news on their website.
