The Northern Michigan Society of Health-System Pharmacists (NMSHP) has recently held two meetings following the winter season. The first meeting, on April 18, held at MidMichigan Alpena featured a presentation by Chelsey Bruski, pharmacist at MidMichigan Alpena, educating the members on commonly used anesthesia medications. The May 16 meeting at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City featured the residents of Munson Traverse City presenting their yearlong research project results. At these meetings, the organization decided to move forward with broader education to certify more pharmacists in northern Michigan with the skill to administer Penicillin Allergy Assessment Skin Testing. This certificate program is planning to be offered at the end of summer/early fall to members of NMSHP.

As the summer season rolls along, our incoming president, Celine Quevillon, will take charge of the organization. Plans will be made for potential social gatherings during the summertime. Meeting information will also be disseminated as the summer progresses.

For more information on upcoming meetings, please contact NMSHP president Celine Quevillon at cquevillon@mhc.net.
