“I have served as Vice-Chair for ANFP for the last year and as treasurer in 2018-2019. I would love to continue to serve and develop new ways for members to get involved in the organization. We have made great progress this year in growing ANFP involvement and I would love to help continue that growth. In this socially distanced world, finding new ways to connect is crucial and I want to implement new social initiatives that connect student pharmacists and new practitioners with each other and other VA pharmacists in a virtual format that provides meaningful connections whether professional or social with our statewide “pharmily.” It would be a privilege to help ANFP continue to grow and continue serving ANFP in this position.”
“I am someone who is truly passionate about being a pharmacist. I truly believe in the oath I took when I became one especially the part about helping groom the next generation of pharmacists. I think that this position is strongly positioned to lead a charge in our profession to develop initiatives that ensure VPHA becomes an organization that is a true value add for our younger members by ensuring they are able to reach their full potential.”
“I have been involved with VPhA in some way since my first year of pharmacy school. I have held small positions, such as being on the Awards Committee and being involved in the ANFP Mentorship Program. I want to be more involved with the Academy and holding a position would be a great experience! I am running because I think this position is best suited for me. I am organized, timely, responsible, and I stay on top of tasks and requests from others. In addition, I am more than willing to help others achieve their goals and to complete the necessary tasks. If elected, I promise to do my best to ensure the Academy is giving new and future practitioners the most out of their membership.”
“My name is Holly Tyson and I am a current 3rd year student at VCU School of Pharmacy. I have been part of VPhA since the beginning of my P1 year and have been involved with ANFP since March of 2019. I have served as one of the VPhA liaisons for the VCU APhA-ASP chapter for the last 2 years and worked closely with ANFP during that time. I have communicated back to the student chapter all the many events and opportunities that ANFP/VPhA have to offer. I would love to expand this role by becoming the secretary of ANFP for the next year and work with the ANFP executive board to provide all the info necessary to the members, students, and new practitioners in our state organization.”
Voting deadline is October 15, 2020.
