The holidays are upon us once again and it is hard to believe that another year is over. As we get ready to welcome 2012, it is also time to welcome a new set of board members to the WMSHP family.
First, I would like to welcome back Dana Staat as President-Elect. Dana served as WMSHP president in 2008 and returned as a Board Member in 2011. Thank you to Dana for agreeing to serve as President-Elect again.
I would also like to thank Kim Melgarejo (Treasurer), Ciji Marckini (Technician), and Kristina Rak (Board Member) who all agreed to continue in their previous positions and survived the tight election this year.
Our newest board members are Kasey Bucher and Abby Sturm from Saint Mary's Health Care in Grand Rapids and Kari Vavra, PharmD of Ferris State University.
The next monthly meeting will be held on January 12, 2012 at Borgess Medical center in the Lawrence Education Center Auditorium. Michael Mitchutka, PharmD will be presenting "From Heart Failure to Heart Success".
Save the Date! This year's WMSHP Spring Seminar will be held on May 14, 2012 at the Prince Conference Center on the campus of Calvin College in Grand Rapids.
