We’ve been busy! We just got back from hosting four students at the jointACA / IACP / ACVP Educational Conference in beautiful San Diego, CA held February 24-27, 2016 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort. Tracy Acosta, Adam Ehalt, Christina Ly and Steven Rush are four passionate pharmacy students the IACP Foundation was proud to spend time with. Take a look at the rest of the email newsletter for more information about their time with us or click here.
The IACP Foundation (IACPF) held nominations for the IACP Foundation Board of Directors, and we are pleased announce Erin Michael, MBA, CPhT as President-Elect and two new General Board members, Lenny Arteaga, RPh, MBA and Ryan K. Hollingsworth, PharmD. We have a strong team of nine committed and passionate individuals and we look forward to working together to support the IACP Foundation’s mission to support the quality, integrity, and advancement of pharmacy compounding and its practitioners for the benefit of patients.
The IACPF awarded the Fall 2015 Research Grant to Sai HS. Boddu, Ph.D., of The University of Toledo for the research project: Evaluation of the Percutaneous Absorption of ABH Gels Across Porcine Ear and Human Abdominal Skin. We look forward to seeing the results of this study in the future!
We also awarded the Fall 2015 Student Essay Writing Competition to Nasheed Shams of Appalachian College of Pharmacy on the theme How is the Drug Quality & Security Act Affecting the Future of Compounding? See the rest of the email newsletter for more information about this program and her essay.
