The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) House of Delegates has reelected David A. Zilz to a second three-year term as Treasurer. The House of Delegates session was conducted in conjunction with the Society’s Annual Meeting ’98 in Baltimore, Md in June.

The Society has extensive publishing and educational programs designed to help members improve their delivery of pharmaceutical care, and it is the national accrediting organization for pharmacy residency and pharmacy technician training programs.
