ASHP Summer Meetings

A truly dynamic event, the ASHP Summer Meetings host not only ASHP’s annual House of Delegates proceedings – with its forums, caucuses, policy proposals, resolutions, installation of officers, and receptions – but also feature intensive skill development sessions in medication safety, informatics and pharmacy practice and policy.

The ASHP Foundation contributes to the educational component of the meetings through a special presentation by the annual recipient of the Award for Excellence in Medication-Use Safety. We also use the meetings as an opportunity to thank our dedicated contributors at an annual donor appreciation breakfast.

The 2017 ASHP Summer Meetings was held in Minneapolis, MN, from June 3-7. The Foundation held the following events during the meeting:

Sunday, June 4

Expert faculty from Cincinnati Children’s, recipient of the 2016 Award for Excellence in Medication Safety, will facilitate this hands-on session.
