SCSS Chair Message January 2020

Aaron Steffenhagen, Pharm.D., BCPS, FASHP

January 2020

Happy New Year Colleagues!

The annual holiday rush is behind us and I expect many are attempting to get back to the normal routine, as am I. With that, the Las Vegas Midyear Clinical Meeting was a memorable experience with great educational programming intermingled while catching up with old friends and making new ones. For those unable to make it in person, or missed a particular Roundtable Session, be sure to check out the Roundtable summaries as posted on ASHP Connect in recent weeks.

If you are considering how to become more involved at Midyear and beyond, consider this. There is an annual call for the SCSS Roundtable Discussion leaders in spring and this could be you leading the Roundtable next year in New Orleans.

Another highlight of the meeting was recognizing the Section’s 2019 Distinguished Service Awardee Dr. Jill Bates, Pharm.D., M.S., BCPS, FASHP for her contributions to the Section and pharmacy practice over the years. Nominations for 2020 are open February 12th through April 1st.  Congrats again to Jill!

Throughout the year, the section advisor groups (SAGs) and committees have been busy to say the least. Within the section, there are four SAGs and two education committees.

Through the time and efforts of these groups and countless others, additional resources have been developed for your practice advancement and educational opportunities. Take a look!

As always, let us know how we can better serve your professional needs at sections@ashp.org.

Best regards,

Aaron Steffenhagen, PharmD, BCPS, FASHP
