In 2013, we changed our name to Western States Pharmacy Coalition to reflect this growth. We grew in 2014 to include Generics and Member Services, and launched our semi-annual news magazine in 2015. 2016 saw introduction of our Strategic Business Managers, and in 2017 we expanded and developed our network of Regional Advisors.
