Welcome back to the fall continuing education session of WMSHP. I hope you all had a great summer and are ready to participate in some great education topics. I would also like to welcome our newest members. Our first ever happy hour/membership drive was quite a success. We had a full house with over 50 attendees, 19 of whom were potential new members.
Our September meeting features one of our board members, Kasey Bucher PharmD, BCPS who will be speaking on blood products and pharmaceutical emergencies.
October is shaping up to be a busy month for WMSHP. Besides our general October meeting, we are busy planning our annual residency showcase. The residency showcase is a great way for potential residents to meet with various residency programs across the state. The general October meeting will be in Kalamazoo on October 10, with the residency showcase in Grand Rapids on October 17.
We are also happy to report that WMSHP will be supporting the Michigan Pharmacists Association Young Practitioner Leadership Academy. We are sponsoring a board member, Kasey Bucher, who will attend the academy this year. We are excited to see what ideas Kasey will be able to share with the WMSHP board and the general membership after attending the academy.
