t is an honor for me to serve as the Presi dent of the Southern California Society of Health-System Pharmacists in 2009. I would like to thank our members for entrusting me with this responsibility. It is my goal to continue the tradition of being part of the BEST local chapter of the California Society of HealthSystem Pharmacists. The Southern California chapter is fortunate that it has exceptional members, like you. I hope that our members will continue to support our chapter by being active and renewing their memberships. We exist because of YOU. But we also need your participation in both implementation and attendance for successful programs. I am confident that this coming year there will be a program that will offer our members a full agenda of representation of current pharmacy issues and events.

being introduced to the State Assembly to establish a single licensure standard for pharmacy technician licensure. The impact of this bill, if passed, would be enormous because licensed pharmacy technicians are valuable partners in pharmacy practice and members of our organization. SCSHP will also be present at the CSHP Legislative Day in April in Sacramento. The purpose of Legislative Day is to meet with our elected officials to discuss pharmacy issues. We will continue to have monthly dinner CE programs. In addition to these programs, special CE programs are being planned, the details of which will be released as soon as they become available. A joint activity with the San Fernando Valley chapter is in the early planning stages, as well as a Saturday half-day education program. Some of my goals for SCSHP for this coming year are to become involved with activities such as Health Walks and Health Fairs, and Food Drives and Toy Drives.

I

want to take a brief moment to reflect on the past year – and what a whirlwind it has been! Last year, I announced that membership recruitment and retention was the priority for 2008. I am happy to announce that by the end of 2008, we did reach the 300 member mark! This was our goal and everyone played a part in helping us reach this threshold. I also want to summarize a few of our other accomplishments this year and to express my gratitude to those on the Board of Directors who helped me ensure another successful year for our chapter. First, I want to thank and acknowledge our Continuing Education Committee, Gene Lew and Kent Meilich, for an awesome effort. Their commitment and dedication allowed us to provide fourteen hours of continuing education this

year! We had a special half-day breakfast event in Beverly Hills and even trialed a Sunday night event with a Happy Hour. A very heartfelt thank you for their efforts to bring varied educational dinner opportunities to our members as this value-added benefit is one of the most highly regarded by our members. Our Industry Liaison, Kathy Doyle, is also deserving of many thanks as she arranged a first-ever financial planning seminar specially geared to our members. I would also like to thank our Technician Liaisons, Geraldine Taino and Evelyn Wing, for organizing our third annual Technician Appreciation Day, held this year at Dodger Stadium. Thanks also go to the Membership Committee, Priscilla Woo and Evelyn Wing, who helped organize Family Night at the Hollywood

Bowl. This well attended, annual event continues to entice participation from a cross-section of the members and is always well received. Special thanks go to Patty Wong who was instrumental in single-handedly organizing the LER Conference Breakfast that SCSHP annually sponsors in support of graduating pharmacy students. Through this and efforts to recruit many new residents, our proportion of new practitioner members has grown significantly this past year. To ensure that the needs of this group are met, we created a new position on the board for New Practitioner Liaison. Angela Rosenblatt currently holds this position and I thank her for her sustained efforts to recruit new members among the new practitioners. This will continue to be an area of focus for incoming President Gene Lew. I also want to thank our Public Affairs Chair, Rosemarie Boward, for organizing the Holiday Toy Drive this year. Thanks to our members’ generosity, we donated nearly double the toys relative to the previous year. I also want to highlight some other significant contributions from our Board Members. Thanks to the Hospitality Committee, Elaine Fujimoto and Cindy Odegard, for another wellattended, financially successful event this year at the Cheesecake Factory. I thank Tom Pugh for once again updating the Website – which is a daunting task for those of us who are not as technologically savvy. Additionally, special thanks to Lisa Gunther Lum who continues to serve double duty as our CSHP Liaison and as the Newsletter Chair. In her spare time, Lisa even managed to produce a fourth newsletter this year, which is a first for the chapter. I also want to thank Emily Han and Gary Besinque, whose diligence as Secretary and Treasurer, made my position that much easier. Last, but not least, I want to thank my immediate predecessors, Scott Evans and Melanie Joe. They provided me with invaluable assistance and a road map for success that guaranteed a great outcome for our chapter this year. Once again, thanks to the membership for allowing me the opportunity to serve as guardian of this great chapter this past year. It was a year of personal and professional growth for me, and provided me an experience that will last a lifetime!

Most recently, Scott was Co-Chair of the Seminar 2008 Management Team. Seminar 2008 is now the most well attended and financially profitable Seminar ever. Without his leadership and guidance, Seminar would not have been such an enormous success. Congratulations, Scott for being SCSHP’s Pharmacist of the Year.

National Poison Prevention Week: March 15-21, 2009 Help consumers understand Pharmacists’ roles during Poison Prevention Week, March 15–21. National Poison Prevention Week is an ideal opportunity to educate the public about the precautions they should take when storing their medications at home, ways to avoid medication errors while in the hospital, and what to do if they experience an adverse drug event. The observance can also help raise public awareness about the valuable role that pharmacists play in ensuring medication safety. Use ASHP’s Poison Prevention tool kit during National Poison Prevention Week to educate the public. The ASHP tool kit can be found on their web site at http://www.ashp.org/ poisonprevention. For more information on planning activities during Poison Prevention Week, contact Aretha Hankinson, ASHP Public Relations Manager, at [email protected].
