Dear New Hampshire Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Residents, Students and Supporting Members:

 

As the incoming President of the New Hampshire Society of Health-System Pharmacists (NHSHP), I would like to welcome you to 2020, a year which is sure to be a great one for our profession. 

 

NHSHP’s mission statement is as follows:

  • To advance public health by promoting the professional interests of pharmacists practicing in integrated health care system.
  • To apply evidence- based medicine to actively promote the concept and value of pharmaceutical care and rational medication use to all health care consumers and providers.
  • To participate in legislative/regulatory processes that affect the practice of pharmacy.

 

Please join or renew your membership by visiting our website: www.nhshp.org. Your membership runs from January to December every year and supports pharmacy advocacy efforts, continuing education programs for both pharmacists and technicians, as well as our dinner meeting programs.  Your membership also provides opportunity for you to become involved in expanding pharmacy practice.

  • Advocacy: NHSHP continues to support the campaign for provider status for pharmacists at both the federal and state level.  At the state level, we are delighted to announce that we have made significant strides advocating for provider status.  Currently, our legislative committee is actively supporting HB 1600 “Relative to Smoking Cessation Therapy and Pharmacist Reimbursement Under Medication and Making and Appropriation Therefor”.  The intent of this bill is to recognize pharmacists as providers and includes provisions for pharmacists to be reimbursed for cognitive services that they provide for smoking cessation, hormonal contraception, and collaborative practice.
  • Continuing Education Events:
  • Join us for our Cabin Fever event, March 13-15, 2020 at the North Conway Grand. This is a great opportunity to obtain 5.5 hours of live CE, as well as time to explore all the activities that North Conway has to offer. For registration information and a brochure of this event please visit our website (www.nhshp.org). 
  • Mark your calendars for our full day CE program.  The Columbus Day Program is scheduled for October 12th, 2020 at the Puritan in Manchester, NH.
  • We sponsor two dinner meetings every year, and these dinners are free for members! Our first program will be held on May 19th, 2020 at The Falls in Manchester, NH.
  • NHSHP’s Annual Technician CE Event will be held on April 19th, 2020 at the Centennial in Concord, NH.

Please visit our website at www.nhshp.org and “like” us on Facebook and Instagram to stay connected.  We are always looking for volunteers from our membership to assist at our programs, please reach out to any NHSHP Board member to become involved.

 

On behalf of NHSHP, thank you for the work that you do every day to make a difference in the lives of your patients.  We look forward to seeing you at one of our events this year!

 

Respectfully submitted,
Tonya Carlton PharmD, BCPS, CPE
NHSHP President 2020
