An impressive 56 student posters from the University of Florida College of Pharmacy were selected for presentation at the 2019 American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, or ASHP, Clinical Midyear Meeting in Las Vegas. The annual meeting is the largest gathering of pharmacy professionals in the nation — attracting more than 25,000 people. The venue provided a national audience for UF pharmacy students to showcase their diverse clinical research discoveries.
The 56 student posters presented in Las Vegas represents one of the largest contingents among the nation’s colleges of pharmacy and an increase in participation over previous years. ASHP selected 31 UF student posters at the 2018 Clinical Midyear Meeting in Anaheim, while 46 student posters were selected at the 2017 meeting in Orlando.
“It is exciting to see many of our UF pharmacy students take an interest in clinical research and contribute to the body of knowledge,” said Julie Johnson, Pharm.D., dean and distinguished professor in the UF College of Pharmacy. “We are proud of these student scholars and the quality of research shared at the ASHP Clinical Midyear Meeting. The experience will serve them well as they begin their professional pharmacy careers.”
