Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe and merry Christmas Holiday.
As you may be aware, we have several new faces on the WMSHP Board this year:
Cherie Woodhams, who is the pharmacy educator at Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo.
Shaun Phillips, who is the clinical coordinator at Mercy General Health Partners in Muskegon.
Kim Melgarejo, who is a clinical pharmacy specialist at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo.
Bill Kriel, who was elected to the pharmacy technician position on the board, from St. Mary’s in Grand Rapids.
I look forward to working with all of them for the next two years. I would also like to welcome back Jodie Bakus for another two year term on the board, as well as Natalie Vazzana for a one year term.
On behalf of the WMSHP board, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Jean Lee for her hard work as President this past year, as well as to those leaving the board, including Jody Mehren who served as a board member, and Peggy deVoest who set the bar high as Past-President.
I am very excited to serve as president for 2006 year, and hope to see all of you at our monthly meetings, starting this month at St. Mary’s.
