The Northern Michigan Society of Health-System Pharmacists (NMSHP) is off and rolling with our fall programming for the 2018-19 year. Our first event of the season was a sponsored dinner exploring a novel treatment for distributive shock. Daniel Gerard, R.Ph., a critical care pharmacist from northern Michigan, presented this topic at the Otsego Club and Resort in Gaylord in early October. Our next meeting in late October featured NMSHP member Adam Utley, Pharm.D., BCPS, presenting on an antibiotic near and dear to every pharmacist’s heart, vancomycin. This meeting was broadcasted across northern Michigan from Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, where Adam discussed literature updates and dosing strategies for this prevalent medication.


After our October meeting, NMSHP commenced its winter break until April, when we will offer our second continuing education event at MidMichigan Medical Center in Alpena. During our meeting hiatus, we hope to host social events that will allow our members to enjoy the winter weather and network with each other.
