Join Jon R. Roth, MS, CAE, Chief Executive Officer for the California Pharmacists Association, at NCPDP’s 2017 Educational Summit, Policy, Pilots, and Patients: Forces Shaping the Healthcare Experience
California led the nation in 2013 with the first successful pharmacist provider status legislation. This important policy change, coupled with expanded pharmacist scope of practice authorities, propelled the important role that pharmacists play in providing direct patient care in the state.
Jon Roth has 25 years of experience in health policy, advocacy, and member services within a variety of health care sectors. As CEO of the California Pharmacists Association, Roth oversees all aspects of the association’s operations, health policy and advocacy efforts on behalf of California pharmacists. The California Pharmacists Association is the largest statewide professional society of pharmacists in the country. As CEO of CPhA, Mr. Roth and his team were directly responsible for the development and passage of Senate Bill 493, the landmark legislation granting pharmacists ‘provider status’ and greatly expanding the clinical authorities of pharmacists in California. This accomplishment was recognized by the United States Surgeon General for “successful contributions in leading legislative change to expand the role of California pharmacists as health care providers.”
