Educational Sessions 

The MSHP R&E Foundation continues to offer our new Resident Ground Rounds series and our Preceptor Development Series.   

Information for the Resident Ground Rounds Series can be found here:  


This series will run routinely (approximately every other week) through early June.  We are excited to bring this offering forward to provide a vehicle for residents within the state to continue to hone their presentations skills as well as share new information with other pharmacy practitioners (pharmacists, technicians, and students) throughout the state.  These sessions are available for CE through the Missouri State Board of Pharmacy. 

The Preceptor Development Series continues with quarterly programming for preceptors of all levels throughout our state.  Please check the Upcoming Events section of the MSHP website for the full schedule of events. 

Due to our inability to have in person events, fund raising for the R&E foundation has been a challenge over the last few years.  If you are able, please donate to the R&E here: https://www.moshp.org/donate  

Additionally, please visit the recently updated R&E Website at https://www.moshp.org/foundation which includes the R&E Board, updated award winners, and award archives! 

Have a wonderful late spring and early summer! 

Respectfully submitted,  

Tony Huke, Pharm.D., BCPS
MSHP R&E Executive Director
