NACDS Chair, Mike Wysong, Speaks at NACDS Total Store Expo

CEO of CARE Pharmacies and NACDS Chair, Mike Wysong, spoke at “Innovation Abounds” with Retailer-Supplier Collaboration at the  NACDS Total Store Expo.

During his remarks, Wysong thanked NACDS chain and supplier members for coming together to commemorate 90 years as an association, celebrate 10 years of the NACDS Total Store Expo and create new firsts that shape our future. He declared:

“The NACDS Total Store Expo continues to reimagine ‘what could be’ and to foster innovation by bringing together the right people, at the right time, in the right setting.”

Wysong and NACDS President & CEO Steven C. Anderson went on to demonstrate what NACDS and the Triumph of Cooperation looks like today — three and a half years after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wysong said, “The pandemic has come and gone and there is a heightened sense of awareness of pharmacies’ growing capacity and capabilities…

“[At the NACDS Annual Meeting,] I talked about our industry being full of great artists. Artists who share a common set of values, and whose paintings differ provider by provider, but who’s spoken and understood expressions are remarkably coherent.”

Wysong explained that the pharmacy industry — and its passionate artists — are making tremendous progress on NACDS policy priorities that are essential to Americans and to the pharmacies on which they rely. Importantly, they are achieving this progress together through NACDS, and thanks to the Triumph of Cooperation.
