NATHAN A. PINNER, Pharm.D., BCPS (firstname.lastname@example.org), is an Associate Clinical Professor with the Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy and a Clinical Specialist in inpatient internal medicine at Princeton Baptist Medical Center, Birmingham, Alabama. He earned his Pharm.D. from the University of Tennessee and completed his PGY1 residency at Methodist University Hospital (MUH) and his PGY2 internal medicine residency with the University of Tennessee at MUH in Memphis, TN.
Pinner currently serves ASHP as a member on the Clinical Specialists and Scientists Educational Steering Committee – Meeting Planning. He has previously served as a member on the Council on Therapeutics and as a Pharmacotherapy Network Facilitator for the Section of Clinical Specialists and Scientists. Additionally, he has been an active member of the Alabama Society of Health-System Pharmacists serving on the Board of Directors for two terms and founding their professional journal.
Serving ASHP and the Section of Clinical Specialists and Scientists through council and committee work has been some of the most professionally rewarding experiences of my career. Through these efforts, I have collaborated with pharmacists from across the country that are just as passionate and dedicated to this profession as I am. ASHP and the SCSS have continued to make great strides in the advancement of pharmacy practice, and I am thrilled to say that I have played a small part in those efforts. As someone that has previously “sat on the sidelines,” I can speak to the transformative power of involving yourself in an organization and profession you care about.
Through my role as an educator, clinical specialist, and clinical researcher, I am well suited to uphold the Section’s mission of advocating for practice advancement and improving patient care through creation and translation of scientific advances into practice. It is more important than ever to cultivate a strong network of practitioners that share this mission and participate in growing the profession. The Section offers excellent resources to their members, and I look forward to the opportunity to grow these resources and identify creative strategies for engaging members.
I consider it a great honor to be nominated for Director-at-Large of the Section, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve ASHP, the Section, and our members, if elected.
