Gallup survey rated MD’s as the third most-trustworthy profession, below only nurses and Pharmacists.

A 2012 Gallup survey rated medical doctors as the third most-trustworthy profession, below only nurses and pharmacists. State legislators with pharmacy backgrounds shape health care policy. Although no pharmacists are in Congress, 46 pharmacists currently serve in state legislatures across the country. The November elections may bring as many as 12 new pharmacists to their state legislature; 6 pharmacists are running in 4 of the 25 states now without pharmacist legislators. A majority, 36, are Republicans; 10 are Democrats.
