2020 Prescription Drug Prices: Growing Slower, but Not Going Lower: Century Mortar Club Endowed Chair Stephen W. Schondelmeyer, PharmD, MPubAdm, PhD, FAPhA, FNAS, explains that a slowed rate of inflation

Updates to Gender-Affirming Pharmacotherapy: A Summary of Guideline Recommendations: Student Pharmacist Megan Waibel writes, “In light of the recent addition of compendia indications for puberty-suppressing
and sex hormone therapies to Micromedex, increased coverage for pharmacotherapy is imminent for persons with gender dysphoria. A review of these therapies is warranted to best serve our patients who may now have
means to pursue gender confirmation.”
Minnesota Legislature: Hot Issues for 2020: Although the state’s response to COVID-19 is currently taking up much of the discussion at the state capitol, MPhA staff and volunteers are working hard to
ensure that other issues related to pharmacy practice are getting consideration by legislators in the 2020 session.
