Healthcare is constantly evolving, and our profession continues to be challenged with new opportunities for change and growth. The Section is ready to equip the pharmacy workforce with resources to continue to advance everyday practice to meet the needs of every patient we encounter. Health and healthcare disparities continue to adversely affect our patients. To ensure there is appropriate healthcare for all of our patients, we must address this through advocacy, education, and teamwork. These disparities must be highlighted to federal and state policymakers, but we should also ensure that federal and state committees have a diverse group of members to adequately address every patient population.

The experiences I have had through serving ASHP and other national organizations have prepared me with the skills to successfully serve as the Director-at-Large for the Section. If elected, I would continue to push the envelope for the advancement of pharmacy practice and address health disparities to ensure access and care for those who have been impacted. It is a great honor to be nominated, and I am dedicated to working as a team to promote the advancement of the pharmacy practice model and ensuring that the role of the pharmacy technician expands as practice changes.
