(From ASHP, Beverly Black, Director, Affiliate Relations Division, August 18, 2015)

 

We would like to notify you of the new ASSHP-SSHP Recognized Societies as there are some in your state.  This email also includes the names of the three Student Societies which were awarded the Student Society Development Grants for 2015-2016.

ASHP offers Student Societies of Health-System Pharmacy (SSHPs) nationwide the opportunity for official "ASHP-SSHP Recognition."  Criteria for recognition encourage SSHP activities that:

  • Promote membership in local, state, and national health-system organizations;
  • Stimulate interest in acute and ambulatory settings;
  • Encourage career development and professionalism among students aspiring to careers in acute and ambulatory settings.   

Congratulations to the 125 Student Societies of Health-System Pharmacy who have earned official recognition from ASHP for 2015-16.

Additionally, ASHP offers a Student Society Development Grant Program, which encourages the development of student societies of health-system pharmacy (SSHPs) in colleges of pharmacy throughout the United States. Grants are intended for use by the ASHP state affiliate and college of pharmacy partners to establish a new SSHP, or to strengthen an existing SSHP, and ultimately to aid the SSHP to achieve official ASHP Recognition. Congratulations 2015 Student Society Development Grant Recipients:

  • California Northstate University College of Pharmacy
  • Western New England University College of Pharmacy
  • Marshall University School of Pharmacy

Thank you for all of your efforts to support the student societies of health-system pharmacy in your state.
