Advocating In The States
State Capitol Days
Throughout the year, Walgreens field team members participate in lobby days organized by retail pharmacy organizations in various state capitols such as New Jersey Pharmacy Day, Illinois Retail Day, Wisconsin Pharmacy Day and Texas Retail Day.
These events empower our team members to educate state lawmakers about our issues during face-to-face meetings that have a major impact.
Last year, during the 2017 Illinois Retail Day over a dozen Walgreens team members meet with lawmakers to discuss pending legislation such as state budget funding for Medicaid reimbursement. It's also a chance to invite legislators to engage with us on local programs like the installation of safe medication disposal kiosks in their community.
