The vision of the Section of Ambulatory Care Practitioners is that “every patient can receive care needed from an ambulatory care pharmacist as part of their healthcare team.” This vision is truly something to aspire to and is a direct reflection of the work that each of our members pours into their participation in the Section and often within their own practices.

As we continue to aspire to this vision as a collective pharmacy profession, the dynamic nature of the healthcare system continues to push us to develop new strategies, approaches, and care models to continue to drive ambulatory pharmacy forward. These efforts take many forms, from equipping membership with various resources such as resource center documents, podcasts, and webinars to leading policy changing efforts at state and national levels. Our Section remains adaptable to meet the changing needs of our membership within this dynamic healthcare environment.

Being an active member of ASHP is truly one of the highlights of my career. I have had the opportunity to help other members grow ambulatory pharmacy services through various activities within the Section while collaborating with a network of individuals who are passionate about continuing to advance ambulatory care pharmacy practice. Through my history of service to the Section as well as my practice experience, I am well-equipped for the role of Section Chair. It is an honor to be nominated to continue to serve our ASHP membership in this capacity.
