"Today the only thing that is permanent is change." —Dr. Charlie Mayo.
We are living in a time where technology intersects with every aspect of our lives, and to be able to provide excellence in health care delivery, we must be creative in the ways we utilize technology for our advantage.
Our profession is encountering multiple short and long-term opportunities and to be able to take advantage of those opportunities while staying agile and proactive to every unpredicted challenge this Section will need to continue providing exceptional leadership. The director-at-large role will allow me to represent the members of our community who may not be able to attend every meeting and make sure their voice is heard. I’m beyond humbled and grateful for this opportunity while we as a community continue our journey transforming healthcare.
I am proud to be part of this profession and I am delighted to have worked with so many passionate and expert pharmacists in the clinical application SAG over the last seven years. The SAG completed many good projects, and I am enthused and excited about all possible future collaboration with the member of our community to continue this work as a director-at-large. Thank you for your consideration and what an honor.
