1. Nancy Nemes Memorial Donations

    We are profoundly grateful to the family of Nancy Nemes for designating memorial gifts be sent to the NCPDP Foundation in her memory and to all those who donated in her memory. To date we have received $3,952 which was doubled through our matching funds program for a total of $7,904. Nancy devoted countless hours to the process of creating standards to enable timely, accurate and secure exchange of healthcare information. These funds will help support research to increase understanding of the value of NCPDP standards and promote widespread use of their capabilities. The donations will also help fund scholarships for future pharmacists who will help perpetuate the work of NCPDP in the future.
