A select group of UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy students are preparing to present their research at this year’s American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting.
Forty-seven student-led research projects from the school of pharmacy were chosen for poster presentations at the Midyear meeting in Las Vegas. Each project includes a primary author and up to four co-authors, representing faculty and preceptor mentors as well as other faculty, staff and student collaborators.
These posters cover a variety of topics such as identifying and removing substandard and falsified medicines in South Africa, the willingness of pharmacists to sell fentanyl test strips and factors influencing pharmacy student and faculty well-being.
The ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting is one of the largest pharmacy conferences in the world, bringing together over 20,000 pharmacy professionals and students.
The ASHP Midyear student poster presentations give pharmacy students an opportunity to share their research with other students and attendees through visual aids and a brief verbal explanation of their content. Student presenters can answer questions about their research and receive timely feedback on their posters.
“I am excited to exercise my poster presentation skills and discuss our findings with attendees of ASHP’s Midyear Clinical Meeting. Returning to in-person meetings, I am eager to network and make connections over shared interests in advancing clinical practice.” said Marshall D. Winget, a fourth year Pharm.D. candidate.
The students able to attend the conference will present their posters on Monday, Dec. 5, and Tuesday, Dec. 6, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
“Presenting this research at ASHP Midyear will allow me to have conversations with other healthcare providers surrounding the advancement of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the classroom, on rotational experiences and in practice!” said Bethany Volkmar, a fourth year Pharm.D. candidate.
