Happy Monday ASP! Since the P1’s are leaving for their community IPPE soon, Member of the Month is coming to you a little early! As we wind down the semester, we want to recognize our members who were nominated for MOM throughout the year: Blake Harrington, Hannah Henderson, Savannah Rainey, Emily Royal, and Rachel Shelley. These members have continually showed passion and dedication for both the field of pharmacy and our organization. Without all of our members, we would not be able to make the same impact to our community. We’re looking forward to the next school year to welcome the incoming P1 class to our organization and to see what new events we hold! See you in August!
