President's Message from Davina Dell-Steinbeck, PharmD, BCPS
“Legacy is not what I did for myself. It’s what I am doing for the next generation.”
“People have been known to achieve more as a result of working with others than against them.”
One of my favorite things that I do every year is attend the MSHP Spring Meeting. I love the networking and the learning. I enjoy catching up with old friends, students, and colleagues and meeting new people. I am amazed when I walk through the poster sessions with the awesome research that is being done throughout the state. I always leave the meeting feeling rejuvenated and full of new ideas that I would like to implement at my own practice site.
Last year, when the board decided to make the meeting virtual, I was a little sad because I was afraid that I would not leave the meeting with that same feeling. I was so wrong! While virtual meetings are different from in-person meetings, I still get a lot from them. The ICHP/MSHP Spring Meeting will be a virtual meeting taking place March 19-20. Information about registration will be out soon. The programming committees from both states have been working together for the past several months to put together a great virtual meeting. We will have a good variety of topics to choose from. For the first time we are also going to have a track full of on-demand sessions.
Each year the programming committee tries to blend each president’s theme for the year into a cohesive theme for the meeting. The theme for this year’s meeting is “Build a Bridge, Create a Legacy.” I could not think of a better theme for this year’s meeting! Over this pandemic year, I have built many bridges between departments, people, and organizations that I never had the privilege of working with previously. I know that I am not alone in this, we all have done this. I also know that this pandemic is now wrapped into all our legacies. Hopefully, one of the silver linings of the pandemic is the relationships we have made and the lessons we have learned throughout. These will stay with us always and make us stronger. I hope you all are looking forward to the Spring Meeting. I know I am!
I also would like to discuss Legislative Day. Legislative Day will be March 30th. Historically, MSHP has not had a strong showing at Legislative Day. I hope we have all learned the importance of advocacy over the happenings throughout our state and nation this year and through the educational offerings that MSHP has provided. I am not 100% sure what Legislative Day will look like this year, but I hope MSHP has a record turnout. Please join me in attending Legislative Day and bring a friend!
