UI Health Pharmacy Tech Task Force - Social Mixer Highlights

by Leann Nelson, Communications Manager

The Pharmacy Technician Task Force Committee of UI Health held a Social Mixer on September 13, 2017. Clara Gary, ICHP Technician Representative, reported that the event was a great success and attended by approximately 70 people (technicians and students). 

During the event, CE Credit and an ICHP Informational Webinar were provided. The committee also compiled surveys and will be working with the facility administration on the items that were determined to be most important to the technicians which included mentorship, training and finding opportunities for advancement.

Clara credits the ICHP Double Dose promotion as being a helpful tool to recruit several new ICHP members at the event.

Rita Edwards, Ina Henderson, Dina Velez, and Margie Villarreal (Members of the UI Health Pharmacy Technician Task Force Committee) along with their Pharmacist Mentors (Adam Bursa and Christine Godwin) worked hard to coordinate and execute this successful event. They were also aided by the support of Andy Donnelly (Director of Pharmacy) and Sandra Durley (Assistant Director of Ambulatory Care Pharmacy).
