ASHP’s Summer Meetings & Exhibition Kicks Off with Powerful In-Person Education and Networking Opportunities

Dear Colleagues,

ASHP’s 2022 Summer Meetings & Exhibition is about to begin with interactive, robust learning experiences and a host of networking and professional development opportunities. This will be our first in-person conference since December of 2019 and the first time we’ve held the meeting in Phoenix, AZ.

Our theme this year is “Return, Refocus, and Refresh.” With specialized sessions about informatics, health and wellness, the opioid crisis, and diversity, equity, and inclusion, this gathering is the perfect opportunity to rediscover the importance of sharing in-person knowledge and revitalizing professional connections.

We are delighted to welcome top-notch speakers, such as former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, who will be our keynote speaker at the opening general session on Monday, June 13.

In addition, the Summer Meetings & Exhibition will feature exceptional programming, where attendees can earn up to 19 hours of continuing education credits. Session highlights include:

  • Blockchain for Healthcare: The Innovation We Need or a Distracting Waste of Resources?
  • Extending Leadership Influence and Stimulating Innovation to Reset, Rebuild, and Remodel Successful Teams Part 1 & 2
  • Healthcare Disparity: Removing Barriers to Safe Patient Care
  • Suicide Prevention: A Family Story

View the full schedule for more details.

The Summer Meetings & Exhibition is also the backdrop to our 74th annual meeting of the ASHP House of Delegates. The House of Delegates oversees ASHP’s professional policies, which express our position on important pharmacy practice and medication use issues in our communities. Summer Meetings attendees are welcome to attend the open sessions of the House of Delegates held in the afternoon on Sunday, June 12, and in the late afternoon on Tuesday, June 14, to hear discussions about current and new policies.

I also encourage attendees to stop by the annual Inaugural and Awards session, which will feature a thought-provoking inaugural address from incoming ASHP President Dr. Paul Walker.

These are just a few highlights from a Summer Meetings program packed with outstanding content. Thank you for your continued support of ASHP and for all you do every day for your patients and the pharmacy profession. I hope to see you in Phoenix!
