Hello KSHP! Your Society continues to work for all health-system pharmacists and we’re having a great year. We have recently been involved with important legislative and practice issues and have a couple of exciting initiatives that I am pleased to be able to share with you:
· Our Spring Meeting is almost here and it looks to be one of the best ever! Expect impressive educational opportunities with content related to critical care and anticoagulation, an interactive sterile compounding session with representatives from the Board of Pharmacy and a chance to be one of the first KY pharmacists to receive training for an innovative expanded practice opportunity. There will also be networking opportunities and the introduction of a new exclusive sponsor event. The Spring Meeting will be held May 20, 2016 at the Hyatt Lexington. Please mark your calendars to attend and be a part of this groundbreaking group!
