Northern Michigan remains chilly during these winter months, but Northern Michigan Society of Health-System Pharmacists (NMSHP) members eagerly await upcoming meetings in the spring. NMSHP is currently on winter break, following its last two meetings in October and November.
The October meeting was held at the Otsego Club in Gaylord, where Dan Gerard, pharmacist at McLaren Northern Michigan, discussed novel treatment options for distributive shock. The November meeting also took place at Munson Medical Center, where Adam Utley, infectious disease pharmacist at McLaren Northern Michigan, gave an informative presentation on vancomycin.
NMSHP is working towards two meetings in the upcoming spring, April 18 and May 16. The April meeting is currently being planned with regards to our CE offering. This meeting is to be held at MidMichigan Medical Center in Alpena. The May meeting of 2019 will feature the residents of Munson Medical Center presenting their research projects. This is to take place at Munson Medical Center. CE will be available at all spring NMSHP meetings, so look no further for a reason to come spend a day in beautiful northern Michigan!
