SOPIT Chair Message November 2019

November 2019

Dear Friends,

Coming off the heels of American Pharmacist’s Month and National Health IT Week, we have a lot to celebrate!  We have so many members doing amazing things.  I’d love to highlight a few:

What Does Healthcare IT Mean to You? feat. SOPIT Members by Beju Shah of Daily Dispense
Harness the Pharm.D. Power to be a Rockstar Engineer feat. David Vu via The Non-Traditional Pharmacist
How To Introduce Pharmacy Informatics to IPPE Students by Tony Dao of Pharmacy, IT, & Me
Paying off $207K in Student Loans in 4 Years feat. Matt Farley by Tim Ulbrich of Your Financial Pharmacist (YFP)
ASHP Midyear - A Student’s Perspective feat. Courtney Scott via RxRadio

And that’s just scratching the surface!  Did you know about the r/pharmacy subreddit,  The Pharmacist’s #Slack community, or OrbitalRx – a tech startup founded by ASHP Members?

We have an incredible network of smart, talented, creative members inside SOPIT venturing out of their comfort zones finding innovative ways to express themselves and explore new paths.  If this is something that interests you, there’s no better place to network than ASHP Midyear.  We have a handful of great networking events planned in Vegas.  Here’s a link to all Informatics Sessions at Midyear. Make sure to add these to your calendar:
