Initial Involvement in ASHP
"I became involved in ASHP as a student when I first started to look into the many residency opportunities and various career paths for pharmacists. During my residency I went to ASHP Midyear meeting for the first time to present on my residency project and I remember a distinct energy and contagious excitement for the advancement of the pharmacy profession. This was something I really resonated with and I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization."

Additionally, there are very few hard and fast rules in this field. Pharmacists working in pain management need to strike a balance between appropriate prescribing and patient advocacy."

To this end, they offer high-value education and resources that provide pharmacists, and the profession as a whole, the opportunity to step into new roles and practice at the top of the pharmacist license."
