KCHP is pleased to announce a new feature to our newsletters and our website. Every newsletter, a technician member will be featured in our Technician Member Spotlight. The goal of this spotlight is to recognize KCHP technician members’ accomplishments, highlight the diversity of our membership, and to help KCHP members feel more connected by learning more about each other. 

Please consider nominating someone, or nominating yourself! It is a great way for the nominee’s accomplishments to be recognized and to showcase the valuable work technicians contribute to health-system pharmacy in Kansas. We are excited to bring you this new feature and we look forward to receiving your nominations!

Instructions:

Members chosen for the KCHP Technician Member Spotlight will be featured in the KCHP newsletter and will also be recognized on the KCHP website. Nominations of technicians at any level are welcome. To nominate a colleague or yourself, please submit the online nomination form. Nominations will be reviewed by the Board of Directors and the selected member will be contacted to fill out a brief survey, if they agree to be featured.
The KCHP Board, Committees, Task Forces and Members are keeping busy during these COVID times to deliver timely information and education. To build upon the current strategic plan , the board requests YOUR input as we prioritize the next year. 

Please take a few minutes to complete a brief KCHP Membership Survey . Your responses will be used to update our strategic plan and corresponding action plans.
On behalf of KCHP, we welcome back all students for the 2020-2021 school year! We hope you had a relaxing, fun, and safe summer, and are now ready to tackle the year. COVID-19 presents a new set of challenges for education, but we are confident you can rise to the occasion and be successful. We wish you luck as you conquer another year!”
