SAN ANTONIO, TX, USA, November 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bridging the gap between the government and healthcare industry, Nationwide Pharmaceutical is a top tier provider of pharmaceuticals and pharmacy services to the federal government.
NABP’s Drug Distributor Accreditation (formerly known as Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors) is a resource for industry and regulatory bodies that establish uniform safeguards meant to protect the public health. Drug Distributor Accreditation plays a pivotal role in preventing counterfeit drugs from entering the United States drug supply and protects the public from drugs that have been contaminated, diverted, or counterfeited.
