Hi Tech
New Technician Network - 1st Call

by Becky Ohrmund, CPhT, Pharmacy Technician Specialist, Pharmacy Department, Northwestern Memorial Hospital

Hello Fellow Technicians,

We had our inaugural Pharmacy Technician Network call on Tuesday, March 10, 2020. In total, 5 technicians, including myself, as well as the ICHP staff were in attendance. During this initial call we introduced ourselves, discussed network goals for the next year, and brainstormed topics for the Annual Meeting. We also focused on ways to engage the technician membership.

The hope for this new network is to bring health-system pharmacy technicians together to provide ideas for meeting programming “by technicians for technicians” as well as show the value of being a member of ICHP. My goal as Technician Representative-Elect for now and Technician Representative when I am installed at the Annual Meeting is to have a network where technicians feel they can discuss their ideas and where their ideas will be heard and implemented. I would also like the technicians throughout the state to come together either in small groups or a large group and participate in community service projects. Since we have only had one call we are still in the early stages of this network. We would love to have you join if your schedule allows.

If anyone is interested in joining the new Pharmacy Technician Network, we meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 5-6 pm via conference call. Please email me at if you would like to be included on our next call!
