As we reflect on this past year, we’re inspired by all that our industry has accomplished in the face of unprecedented uncertainty. As demand for self-care options continues to increase and evolve, the role of CHPA and the CHPA Educational Foundation – connecting, educating, and advocating for its member companies – has never been more important. Together, we are making tremendous progress on our vision of happier, healthier lives through responsible self-care.

As demand for self-care options continues to increase and evolve, the role of CHPA – connecting, educating, and advocating for its member companies – has never been more important. Together, we are making tremendous progress shaping the future of consumer healthcare. Yet, there is still much to be accomplished.
