Four pharmacy students from the University of Florida College of Pharmacy’s St. Petersburg campus have been appointed to American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, or ASHP, student advisory groups.
There are six ASHP advisory groups that provide advice and guidance for student members to help them successfully launch careers in hospital and health-system practice. Each advisory group is made up of 15 student pharmacists from universities across the United States.
The four St. Petersburg students receiving appointments include:

Under Webb’s leadership the group will advise ASHP regarding the growth and development of future health-system pharmacy leaders to cultivate a culture based on the philosophy that leadership is a professional obligation.
- Victoria Baker was appointed as a member of the Career Development and Education Advisory Group. Baker’s group will advise ASHP regarding the content, development and evaluation of student-relevant education, events and programs.
- Jessica Boh was appointed as a member and Work Group Lead of the Student Society Development Advisory Group. Boh’s group will advise ASHP regarding the facilitation of growth and development of Student Societies of Health-System Pharmacy.
- Alexa Conte was appointed a member of the Policy and Legislative Advocacy Advisory Group. Conte’s group will advise ASHP regarding the growth and development of pharmacy students as effective advocates for the profession of health-system pharmacy.
