Hi New Practitioners,

We hope you enjoyed the holiday season and that 2020 is off to a great start! 

Are you looking for resources to help meet your professionally-related New Year’s resolutions? If so, the ASHP New Practitioners Forum (NPF) has many resources to help. The ASHP NPF supports the mission and vision of ASHP by promoting the growth of pharmacy practice leaders and providing a collective voice for the new practitioners in the association. “Creating the future of pharmacy,” is our recently updated tagline that is reflected in our mission and vision statements. 

We ended 2019 with a BIGGER and BRIGHTER Midyear Clinical Meeting in Las Vegas. The meeting was jam-packed with excitement and activities. Whether you were interviewing or being interviewed, recruiting, networking, or attending CE, we hope you enjoyed the meeting. Additionally, the ASHP NPF Executive Committee met to review the year-to-date and our six ASHP NPF Advisory Groups were able to meet in-person to continue to work through projects. Missed MCM19?  Check out ASHP TV for highlights. Interested in educational content from MCM19? View or download materials from any of the sessions until 12/1/2020 (optimized in Chrome). Do not forget to process your CE by January 31, 2020.

Prior to MCM19, the ASHP NPF Advisory Groups participated in a friendly, AG-to-AG competition to raise donations for the ASHP Political Action Committee (PAC). We are happy to report that ASHP NPF Advisory Group Members raised almost $2,000.00 in support of the ASHP PAC. The PAC is bipartisan and helps congressional constituents champion for the role of pharmacists and initiatives that are important to us as health-system pharmacists.

In addition to thinking about last year, this New Year also gives an opportunity to think about the upcoming year and setting goals. You likely have a strategy for setting goals and there are certainly many avenues for goal-setting. Remember that setting small goals can have a big impact. Consider setting a goal that impacts and advances the profession of pharmacy. However, whatever goals you choose, enjoy the process and appreciate the journey.

We want to hear from each of you and encourage you to participate in discussions on ASHP Connect . Do you have ideas or comments for the New Practitioners Forum to meet your needs? Message me, Tyler Vest, on ASHP Connect or email to get the discussion started.

Enjoy the New Year!
