Pharmacy students named to ASHP advisory group
Two Ohio Northern University Raabe College of Pharmacy students were appointed to prominent national positions within the student committees of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
Ryan Fischer, a sixth-year pharmacy student from Spencerville, Ohio, was named chair of the Pharmacy Student Forum Policy and Legislative Advisory Group for the 2011-12 academic year.
Calvin Ice, a fifth-year pharmacy student from Rawson, Ohio, was named to the Pharmacy Student Forum Leadership Development Advisory Group for the 2011-12 academic year.
Five different advisory groups exist within the Pharmacy Student Forum of ASHP: Community and eCommunications, Student Society Development, Leadership Development, Policy and Legislative Advocacy, and Education and Programming. Each group consists of five students appointed by the ASHP president and serve to help the Pharmacy Student Forum Executive Committee.
Advisory Group chair positions were added this year, and Fischer was selected from among other national candidates.
The Pharmacy Student Forum Executive Committee aims to build relationships between the ASHP and pharmacy colleges across the United States by serving as a liaison, providing information to student society leaders, and helping to strengthen the activities and programs of each school’s Student Society of Health-System Pharmacy (SSHP).
