Alexandria, Va. (Vocus) March 5, 2009 -- Today, National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) President and Chief Executive Officer Steven C. Anderson, IOM, CAE submitted a letter to President Barack Obama commending his commitment to healthcare reform on the eve of the first White House Health Care Summit.

"Earlier this year, NACDS was pleased to discuss our Principles for Healthcare Reform and the critical role of pharmacists in the healthcare delivery system with your transition team," Anderson said in the letter.

"Pharmacies are the face of neighborhood healthcare, providing critical services such as medication therapy management, immunizations and disease state management in addition to providing patients with their prescription medications and healthcare supplies. Interactions with local pharmacists have been shown to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare spending, particularly for patients with chronic diseases," Anderson continued in the letter.

Anderson commended the President's shared vision of healthcare reform, acknowledging that the NACDS Principles and the President's plan for healthcare reform - ensuring "appropriate access to healthcare to all Americans in a cost-effective, sustainable manner" - is the same.
