KCHP History

The Kansas Council of Health-System Pharmacists was created in February 2008 as a professional association that is focused on generating the optimum environment in the state of Kansas for responsible, ethical and unsurpassed excellence in health care from pharmacists employed in a health-system setting.  In 2009, KCHP was officially recognized as a state affiliate of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).  In our first year of existence, our membership of professionals grew to more than 200 members.  We are constantly striving to enhance our member benefits, and we recognize that working together is the most successful way to make a difference.
