Testing for Treatment of Influenza
While not typically thought of as such, pharmacists are medical workers too and must go through additional schooling and licensing. This package of bills recognizes pharmacists training and expands their scope of practice to allow for testing of a number of common diseases such as the flu, giving more people greater options for treatment while freeing up more specialized medical professionals to treat fewer routine illnesses. HB 389 was voted up in both the House and Senate and sent to the Governor to sign.
