ASHP Foundation Commits $1 Million in Support of ASHP's National Awareness Campaign

The ASHP Foundation Board of Directors has approved a $1 million commitment to support ASHP's National Awareness Campaign. This multi-year national public awareness campaign spotlights pharmacists' critical and diverse roles in hospitals and health systems.

"The ASHP National Awareness Campaign aligns with one of the Foundation's key priorities, which is educating the public on the role of pharmacists and the pharmacy workforce as essential patient care providers and healthcare leaders," said Foundation board chair Kelly Smith. "We are thrilled to support this initiative, as it is essential to promote respect and understanding of the value pharmacy professionals bring to patient care."

The campaign will feature stories from physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, and other healthcare professionals highlighting how hospital and health-system pharmacists make medication therapy optimal, safe, effective, and accessible for patients.

The Foundation's $1 million commitment is in addition to $3 million in initial funding from ASHP and will assist in amplifying the campaign's message and extending its duration and impact.
