Hi Brian,

Good catching up with you during our kiosk meeting last week. Just
wondering: when and where exactly is this hearing on the prescription
label issue taking place?

Hi folks,

A national effort to ensure that prescription medicines have labels of
at least 12 point type is underway.  This is an extremely useful
pharmacy practice for seniors and those with usable vision.  However, in
spite of the recommendation of their own study, the California State
Board of Pharmacy may very well vote in a few days not to require
normal-ssize type on prescription medications.

Our legislative effort and our members may be able to help by urging the
Board of Pharmacy to adopt the 12-point proposal if we act now via email
and with personal representation during the hearing.

Details below.
