Many of our faculty members and students were recently honored at the 2014 ACCP (American College of Clinical Pharmacy) Annual Meeting in Austin, TX. In recognition of outstanding and sustained contributions to the education of pharmacy students, residents, fellows and critical care practitioners, Dr. Ty Kiser received the Critical Care PRN Education Award 2014; Dr. Rob MacLaren received the Critical Care PRN Research Award 2014 in recognition of outstanding and sustained research contributions in critical care pharmacotherapy; and Dr. Joseph Saseen received the ACCP Education Award for his outstanding contributions to clinical pharmacy education. Dr. Joel Marrs was inducted as Fellow of ACCP and Dr. Katy Trinkley was recognized at the Ambulatory Care PRN Business Meeting as graduate of the 2014 ACCP Research Institute FIT Program and recipient of the FIT Tuition Scholarship. Two of our students also received awards for their excellent work: P-3 students Rebecca Wienbar received the ACCP Student Travel Award and Jennifer Kwon received the Ambulatory Care PRN Student Travel Award. Additionally, many of our P-4s presented posters at the meeting, including Brian Fox, Suhair Shawar, Kaitlyn Moorehead, Phillip Leong, Stephen Shaw, Azhin Qadir and Chelsey Hess. Kudos to all and congratulations for representing our school so well.
A highlight of the meeting included Dr. Robert Page representing CU during the ACCP City Limits Karaoke Stage when challenged by students to sing to support ACCP's Research Institute! Video of his performance will be posted to the school’s YouTube channel soon.
In addition to the honors bestowed during the meeting, the school received official notification Oct. 23 that the students qualified as an ACCP Student Chapter. Mark your calendars for next year (Oct. 17-21) and join students and faculty at the 2015 Global Conference on Clinical Pharmacy in San Francisco.
