    After careful consideration of the risks posed by holding a live conference during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kansas Council of Health-System Pharmacy (KCHP) and Missouri Society of Health-System Pharmacists (MSHP) have made the difficult decision to look for alternatives to holding the 2020 Spring Meeting in Overland Park, KS, scheduled to take place April 3-4, 2020.

    The KCHP and MSHP Boards of Directors have been closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as state and local governments. In the last week, we've also learned of the increasing number of travel advisories and restrictions being placed on health care providers and hospitals and institutions in the U.S. and globally.

    The health, safety and well-being of our members, staff, exhibitors, faculty, and the patients we serve is of paramount importance. With an ever-increasing number of KCHP and MSHP members on the front lines of preparing and reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, we believe it is in the best interest of everyone to cancel the live meeting and ensure our members are able to do what they do best – help and heal.

    Our decision was not taken lightly. We have had several meetings over the past two weeks to discuss options that will still meet the needs of our membership. 

    We are already investigating the ability to hold the Spring Meeting as a virtual event. This will allow us to induct our incoming board members, present posters virtually, secure foundation support, recognize award winners, and deliver high-quality educational content from the 2020 Spring Meeting directly to you. This may require us to move the date to allow time for coordination. Look for more details to come out soon.

    Last, but certainly not least, a meeting the size of the 2020 Spring Meeting is months in the making and involves many member volunteers and staff, as well as generous support from partners and stakeholders and close collaboration with our venue. Please join us in recognizing all of these individuals, particularly 2020 Spring Meeting Chairs: Lainie Linafelter, PharmD / Children’s Mercy Kansas City , and Rebecca Nolen, PharmD, BCPS, BCIDP, AAHIVP / SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – St. Louis  as well as all the volunteers on the sub-committees, for all of their hard work.

    Thank you for all that you do every day to serve your patients and your communities.


    Alex Oschman, PharmD, BCPPS
    MSHP President

    Joe D. Slechta, PharmD, BCPS – AQ Cardiology
    KCHP President

    KCHP/MSHP Board of Directors

    NOTE:  If you are a KCHP member that opted to add Missouri affiliates (GKCSHP or MMSHP) to your KCHP membership, then a record was created on the MSHP website to facilitate email distributions.  During the registration process you will be given the option to "Login" into the MSHP website.  This is not the same password that you have established on the KCHP website.  You also can skip the "Login" process and just proceed to registering for the spring meeting.


    Pharmacists that are interested and willing to support a technician or student to attend the 2020 Spring Meeting, please select "Pharmacist / Technician or Pharmacist /Resident Joint - Full Registration" option.  Then enter the name and email of the individual that you want to sponsor when you get to the end of the registration form.

    PHARMACY DIRECTORS - We still need you for the Reverse Exhibits
    On behalf of MSHP and KCHP, we are looking forward to a most successful spring meeting, April 3 - 4, 2020 in Overland Park, KS but we need your help.   The Reverse Exhibit will be on April 3, 2020 and we are asking for you to hold this day to participate in 3 hour commitment.   This time will allow vendors that have paid up to $1500 per person to spend 5 minutes in a one on one information exchange with key hospitals and systems in MO and KS.  In years past, we have raised more than $55,000 dollars and can only be as successful as participants willing to work the tables.  I look forward to your representation as you feel appropriate.  You can either register yourself by selecting “* Reverse Exhibit Pharmacy Directors” as the option when you sign up or you can just simply let Jim know and I will register you as a “Reverse Exhibit Pharmacy Director”, then you will be all set.

    Please contact Jim Andrews at the KCHP office either by email or phone (314-416-2247), if you have difficulties registering for the Spring Meeting.

    • You’ll have access to directors of pharmacy, operations and clinical managers, clinical specialists, and other influencers in pharmacy practice
    • Exhibiting at a state-wide meeting allows you to network with multiple customers at one time rather than expending travel dollars to meet them locally
