President's Message from Davina Dell-Steinbeck, PharmD, BCPS
“To be an advocate is to have courage, independence and passion for the things that matter.” – Kristen Uedoi
“If you are going to live, leave a legacy. Make a mark on this world that can’t be erased.” – Maya Angelou
This is my last newsletter article as president. I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone. It has been a challenging yet rewarding year to serve. Since my last article, we had our virtual spring meeting. It was a great success! I learned so much from the programming. Kudos to the spring meeting planning committee for putting together an exceptional meeting.
As I stated in my inaugural address, my focus for this year has been increasing our advocacy efforts. We still have much work to do before we get to where we need to be, but we have made huge strides this year! We started the year off with an Advocacy 101 webinar, we had the best turnout in recent MSHP history for Legislative Day, and the public policy committee is working hard on building bridges with groups that will help support our efforts. I’m proud of the work we have done this year and excited to see where these steps take us. We will continue to have many grassroots efforts coming. Keep your eye out for opportunities to contact your legislators about important bills that will hopefully be coming to the floor for a vote during this legislative session.
MSHP presidents have a tradition of picking a theme. My theme for this year has been legacy. This theme stemmed from my passion in precepting. As my presidential term comes to an end, I find myself thinking of my pharmacy legacy again. I encourage to you think about yours. What can you do to have an impact on your pharmacy legacy? There are so many possibilities. Precept, serve on a committee, contact a legislator, help a patient, invite a peer to join MSHP…this list could go on forever. Pick something, do it, and add to your legacy. It has been my pleasure to serve you this year. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for MSHP. I am certain it is very bright.
