Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday season filled with good cheer. Ending the year with our Midyear Clinical Meeting & Exhibition in December was exceptionally exciting with the Integrated Informatics Institute (i3) that started on Sunday afternoon, fantastic keynote speakers, and the Afternoon of Innovation. And, learning how the landscape will evolve as technology from external sources impacts our lives.
Congratulations to Barbara Giacomelli, Pharm.D., M.B.A., FASHP, the 2019 Distinguished Service Award recipient for SOPIT. We are grateful for your many years of dedication and service to our Section and ASHP.
A special thanks to our SOPIT Section Advisory Group leaders Calvin “Clay” Daniels, Dennison Lim, Hesham Mourad, and Marc Willner, for their facilitation of our SOPIT Roundtable Networking Sessions. Also, I want to acknowledge the SOPIT Professional Development’s “Get IT Done” group for planning an outstanding Social Event for SOPIT. Everyone had a great time!
Don’t forget to process your CE credits from MCM19. “ACPE requires that all pharmacy continuing education (CE) credits must be processed and claimed no later than 60 days from the date of the live activity…If you are unsure if you have processed CE, check your profile at NABP-CPE Monitor at https://nabp.pharmacy/ to view your transcript.”
