Initial Involvement in ASHP
“ASHP membership grants us access to a community of practitioners who expand the practice of pharmacy every day. As a student, I joined ASHP to remain informed about new research and current issues within our profession. As my career progressed, ASHP became the place where I caught up with pharmacy friends from across the nation. I was able to network with new practitioners and other pharmacy leaders. Each ASHP meetings became a resource to reconnect, investigate, and discover new ideas and technology.”
