In alignment with the Section of Ambulatory Care Practitioners’ mission statement, we must unite not only as ambulatory specialists, but also as pharmacists advancing our profession. As a pharmacist who has practiced across the lines of hospital and ambulatory settings, I have learned the significance of collaborating and the power of a unified vision. All pharmacists strive to improve patient care and health outcomes; as a profession, we must abandon silos of practice to ensure we are all supporting the advancements of clinical pharmacy practice.
During an unprecedented pandemic, members of this Section have been visionaries in virtual practice and policy developments, openly sharing these innovations and supporting each other while overcoming barriers to change. Collaboratively, with outstanding volunteerism, our Section has created numerous resource documents, informational presentations, and generated national interactions that foster change and growth. We are leaders in the process of change and advancing the profession of pharmacy through our efforts and partnerships while supporting our professional colleagues across all practice environments.
During my time of Section service, I have come to rely on my relationships built nationally resulting from networking because of opportunities within ASHP. Our Section leadership has promoted innovative problem solving, optimal patient care, and inspired professional growth across all practice lines. I am immensely appreciative for the nomination as Director-at-Large for our Section. If elected, I will promote clinical networking for practice innovation, cutting-edge educational programming and resource development, and conversations surrounding the importance of sustainable practice models.
