weaknesses and help the Association become the best it can be. As this is done, there will be the opportunity to develop and
practice leadership skills that can be used in all areas of life. The President will set goals, plan, develop strategies, delegate, coach
and recognize people for their efforts.

HOLD THE DATE:  JANUARY 7 - 8, 2017.
Over 150 pharmacists and technicians participated in the 20th Annual Residency
Program held on January 9 and 10, 2016.

The 2 track program was a resounding success.  Participants embraced the ability
to control what topics they attended and chose those that most met their needs.
Topics were selected from requests that have been submitted throughout the last
few programs and included transition of care, role of the Pharmacist as a primary
care provider, infectious diseases (both community and institutional pharmacy
emphasis), topics in internal medicine, pediatrics, psychopharmacy and more.  
Handouts will be kept on line and available for download for the rest of the year.  
Those that went asked if they could access the
handouts for the presentations that
they were unable to attend.

Next Year we are returning to the Hilton Double Tree Hotel Miami Airport.
