Advice for Someone New to Your Specialty Area

“Be open to change and learn as much as possible. The pharmacist’s informatics field is growing, and I would advise new practitioners to shadow or connect with an existing pharmacist analyst.“

Involvement in ASHP

Trinh’s first involvement in ASHP was a one month rotation at the headquarters during her residency years. She subsequently has been involved in councils and committee work.

“It’s a great way to network and find other pharmacist with your same interests. It is not cliché, Pharmacy is a small world.”

ASHP’s Value to Members

“The value of ASHP is collaboration among members and the resources that the society has to offer. Take an active role as a member of ASHP and make an impact on your profession.”

“The value of ASHP for the profession is seeking legislative changes to improve our profession, highlighting the value the pharmacist place in the patient care, collaboration with other health care stakeholders.”
