Have a Passion for Pharmacy? Become an AACP Brand Ambassador

AACP is seeking brand ambassadors—enthusiastic proponents of pharmacy and pharmacy education—from at least 100 member institutions to kick off a new campaign raising awareness and understanding of the many ways in which pharmacists help people live healthier lives. Brand ambassadors will engage with wider audiences – their communities, civic organizations, media outlets, etc. – to share stories of how pharmacists are truly helping people live healthier, better lives.

There will be programming on the first phase of our new social media campaign – #healthystartshere – at INfluence 2017, Feb. 25-28, in Puerto Rico. We’ll preview some of the campaign videos, and we’ll discuss how you and your schools can become part of this effort. It is not required that your brand ambassador attend the meeting, though we certainly encourage their participation.

Call for Case Studies on Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process

The Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners (JCPP) is seeking case studies illustrating how the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process is applicable across various practice settings and patient care services. The workgroup would like to scan any and all case studies that have been developed in order to know what is currently available as well as to utilize those cases (with the appropriate citation and credit) that would be useful throughout the profession.
