The Western Michigan Society of Health-System Pharmacists (WMSHP) has enjoyed a summer hiatus from monthly programming. In June, board members spent time together reflecting on highlights from the 2016-2017 year and beginning to make plans for 2017-2018. We are excited for another year of programming, as well as expanded networking and service opportunities for our membership. At the summer planning retreat, the Board also voted to sponsor Allison Rider (Spectrum Health) and Mitch Stein (Borgess) to participate in the Health Professional Leadership Academy through the Michigan Pharmacy Foundation (MPF) beginning in October. We are thankful for this opportunity to support our members in their leadership development and look forward to Allison and Mitch bringing these skills back to WMSHP.

On July 13, more than 20 members and their families went to the ball game for the WMSHP Summer Outing at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. Attendees enjoyed an all-you-can-eat barbeque on the Altogas Patio and watched the West Michigan Whitecaps in a 3-2 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels. Thanks to all who joined us for a fun social event!

Monthly meetings with live continuing education (CE) for pharmacists and technicians resume in September. For more information about WMSHP or our upcoming programs, please visit
