Thank you to Autumn Neff, PharmD, MBA, for delivering our October CE “The Fundamentals of Dementia Care.” Dr. Neff did a great job explaining the current pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment options for dementia and how pharmacists can help in the care of these patients. Our November CE presentation will take place on November 11th. Kumar Ramakrishnan, PharmD, will discuss the different types of CRRT and how to dose medications correctly in his presentation “Going with the flow: An overview of Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy”. You can register here!
The annual WMSHP/FSU Residency Showcase was held virtually on October 7th. Thank you to all of the students and residency programs that made this a successful event this year. Speaking of resident recruitment, WMSHP is offering five Midyear student scholarships this year for current P4 students attending the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting. Interested P4 students should reside in West Michigan and submit application materials to me at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 1st. More information may be found here.
Thank you to everyone interested in running for a board position for the upcoming term starting in 2022. Please keep an eye on our website for candidate bios as well as voting information. Those chosen for an upcoming term will be announced at our November meeting. We are still looking for a pharmacy technician board member.

I hope you are all enjoying the fall color changes and changes in temperature as the holidays will soon be approaching. If you have any concerns or ideas on how to improve your membership experience, please do not hesitate to contact myself or any other board member.
