Ohio Northern University pharmacy professor, students attend Ohio Pharmacists Association conference
Lindsey Peters, Ohio Northern University visiting professor of pharmacy practice, was selected as one of 14 pharmacists to attend the Ohio Pharmacists Association’s 2014 Young Pharmacist Leadership Conference in Columbus, Ohio, on Oct. 11.
Adam Smith, a fifth-year pharmacy major from Dublin, Ohio, and Taylor Reed, a fifth-year pharmacy major from Springdale, Ark., were the student representatives for Ohio Northern University.
The purpose of the Young Pharmacist Leadership Conference is to identify emerging leaders, enhance the leadership skills of the participants, and provide motivation to seek greater awareness and involvement in the issues confronting health care and the profession of pharmacy.
This invitational conference included pharmacists who have practiced fewer than 10 years as well as student pharmacist leaders from Ohio colleges of pharmacy. Pharmacists from the Ohio Pharmacists Association also participated.
The Ohio Pharmacists Association, established in 1879, represents more than 4,000 pharmacy educators and pharmacy students throughout the state.
