Passing The Baton To Our Team

by Carrie Vogler, PharmD, BCPS; Immediate Past Presdient, ICHP

I was told that my time serving you as President of ICHP would go by quickly and I can’t believe the time has come to step into my new role of Immediate Past President and pass the baton to Dr. Jennifer Arnoldi, your new ICHP President. This past year’s theme – “Our Team” -- was a perfect fit for pulling everyone together to accomplish great things during unprecedented times.  We started strong by engaging key leaders within ICHP during a leadership retreat. I charged our leaders to find ways to engage members, engage the public, and recruit new members.  We developed and launched a mentorship program within the New Practitioners Network led by Natalie Tucker.  We started the Public Education & Awareness outReach pubLication Subcommittee  (PEARLS) led by Scott Drabant so that we can begin teaching the public about medications and health issues, and explain what health-system pharmacists do.  New networks for residency directors and technicians were created. We changed our communication strategies to reach you at home with our first ever virtual Annual Meeting.  

I encourage you to continue to promote the great things that pharmacists and technicians do each day for our patients. Thank you for the care you have provided to patients, for investing in the profession of pharmacy, and for supporting ICHP. Thank you to the ICHP Board, ICHP staff, and Scott Meyers for the guidance you provided me this year. 

I want to pass the baton to YOU and I want to ask again, will you join Our Team, ICHP?  ■
