November is here, while to others it is Movember and time to grow facial hair in support of changing the “face” of men’s health. Whatever the fall means to you, I hope this message finds you well.
Additionally, for myself and many others; ASHP’s Midyear Clinical Meeting 2019 is almost upon us! Here are a few highlights to share that may benefit you.
- Roundtable Sessions: With 16 sessions hosted by your Section of Clinical Specialists and Scientists (SCSS) of which three have combined poster sessions for enhanced networking opportunities
- Critical Care
- Emergency Medicine
- Board Review and Recertification sessions to prepare for a BPS examination or obtain credits offering great interactive scenario-based learning
- Largest pharmacy Residency Showcase
- Recruitment, recruitment, recruitment event of the year at PPS
After attending the meeting in Las Vegas, if you find yourself considering how to become more involved at Midyear and beyond, consider this. There is an annual call for the SCSS Roundtable Discussion leaders in late winter. You could be leading one next year in New Orleans.
Lastly, I want to bring attention to the launch of the latest podcast channel, ASHP Official. New this fall are ASHP Podcasts with Therapeutic Thursdays and other updates to enhance educational offerings for all. Download and enjoy!
As always, let us know how we can better serve your professional needs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
