KCHP is filled with great leaders of pharmacy. In this section, view acceptance speeches from the best of the best. They are sometimes funny, often very educational, and always inspirational. Our members strive to have the best pharmacy careers they can, and this section will explain why.
KCHP offers numerous educational opportunities each year, via an Annual Meeting filled with networking and CE opportunities, as well as regular District dinner meetings with a CE presentation and member discussion. Several members have also presented educational posters at our Annual Meeting.Check out our educational posters here.
My name is Ricky Ogden and I’m currently serving as the Director of Education for KCHP. I’m very excited to announce that our KCHP-sponsored events will grow from 1 to 4 during the 2017-2018 year! These events will be the Annual Spring Meeting which is a joint meeting with MSHP, Preceptor Bootcamp, Rural Hospital Pharmacy Summit, and Technician Conference. This is a tremendous accomplishment for KCHP and many thanks to those who worked so hard to get these events planned and executed! We need volunteers to help coordinate our 2018 events. If you are interested in serving on the planning committee for any of the events below, please contact me vial email or phone.

Defining Our Strategy
If you flip to the “S” section of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, you will find the definition of strategy. But let’s get real, you probably haven’t flipped to a section of a dictionary in a long time. So, if you Google “strategy” you will find the definition is – a careful plan or method for achieving a particular goal over a long period of time.
The goal of KCHP is our Mission Statement which is to advance public health by promoting the safe and appropriate use of medications through advocacy and education. Your Board – or Chefs– have been hard at work developing the Strategic Plan – or Menu – to achieve this goal.
I am proud to share KCHP’s new Strategic Plan which can be found on our website. Our plan is modeled after ASHP’s Strategic Plan which is divided into three categories – Our Patients, Our Members, and Our Organization. Under each category are Strategic Priorities and Goals intended to be accomplished in 3-5 years. A Board Member is assigned to each Goal.
This is where you come in. As mentioned at the Spring Meeting – YOU are the ingredients that will allow us to achieve our goals.
