President's Corner - April 2024

April 12, 2024 8:54 AM | Benjamin Pontefract (Administrator)

Hello WMSHP Members! It's wild to think it's already April; 2024 is flying by! We just hosted our April Meeting at Founder's, which continued our tradition of inviting 2 local pharmacy residents to present on their research projects. Keitasha Arnold at Corewell Health and Mackenzie Miller at Trinity Health gave a fantastic overview of the work they have been doing this past year. Thank you to them both for all of their hard work!

Our meeting next month, on May 7th, will be our annual Spring Seminar! Sign in and breakfast will start at 7:15 AM with the first CE starting at 8:30 AM. If you have not heard, we have a fantastic line-up of speakers! They are listed below:

  • Susan DeVuyst-Miller - Implicit biases with sexual orientation and gender identity healthcare
  • Autumn Neff - Anticoagulation in Special Populations
  • Nick Rademacher - Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder in the Emergency Department
  • Kyle Schmidt - Updates on Ischemic Stroke Management
  • Deeb Eid - Law Update and Pharmacist Prescriptive Authority

Personally, I am incredibly excited for this event. Our speakers are all brilliant, and I'm sure they will have a lot of interesting ideas to bring to our group.

Lastly, the e-board has our planning meeting in June. If you have suggestions for speakers or topics please reach out to myself (benjaminpontefract@ferris.edu). Otherwise, we will see everyone at the Whitecaps game on August 8th. Have a nice weekend, everyone!
