Welcome Baby Campbell!
Congratulations to ICHP Members Bryan McCarthy and his wife Sarah Sokol on the birth of their second baby boy, Campbell Bryan McCarthy.  Campbell was born April 9th, 2020 weighing 3lbs 2oz and measuring in at 15.5" long.  Campbell (also known as “Champ”) loves snuggling, playing with his big brother Hudson, and Motown music. Congrats, Bryan & Sarah!

Welcome Baby Alina!
On August 20, 2020, ICHP members Tamkeen & Pedro Aramis Abreu and brother Mikail (age 2) added Alina Zara Abreu (8 lbs 8 oz; 19.5") to their family. Welcome to the world little Alina!

Farewell McCarthy Family!
We bid a bittersweet farewell to ICHP Secretary and University of Chicago Medicine Director of Inpatient Pharmacy Services, Bryan McCarthy, as he and his family -  including ICHP member and Bryan’s wife, Sarah Sokol, and their two boys Hudson and Campbell - are headed to Rhode Island.  There, Bryan will assume the Director of Inpatient Pharmacy Services role for the 5-hospital system Lifespan, primarily based in Providence.  Originally from upstate New York, this will make family visits much quicker and easier and provide Bryan with another excellent career opportunity.  We wish them well and will miss them a lot.

Are you celebrating?
