Leadership

There are a variety of leadership positions available to members of SCCP. Below you will find descriptions of the current leadership positions, along with a photo of the leader and what they are looking forward to this next school year!


President: Naomi Do, DPH-3

As president, I get to work alongside the executive committee to come up with plan and idea for SCCP. Together with the president-elect, we select and organize executive board and general member meetings throughout the semester. I facilitate executive board meetings and general member meetings as well as form agendas. I am also responsible for setting the general meeting schedule as well as finding exciting speakers to come present to us.

In the near future, I am hoping to continue to develop and strengthen the Clinical Research Challenge from SCCP, both at the local and national level. During the 2017-2018 school year, I hope to get more involvement in our mentorship program as we have gotten much valuable feedback from last year. My personal goal for this organization is to foster a closer connection with the UW Hospital and Clinics’ pharmacy department as they are a very valuable resource to our students. In addition, I would like to continue to build a strong foundation for the organization for the year to come.

 


President Elect: Andrew Osterbauer, DPH-2

As president-elect, I work to fill the roles and responsibilities of the president in his/her absence. This means that I facilitate executive board meetings and general member meetings as well as form agendas on occasion. I am also responsible for setting the general meeting schedule as well as finding speakers to come present to us. I also facilitate a lot of the communication that takes place between members of the executive board and work to make sure the events run smoothly.
During the 2017-2018 school year, I hope to promote SCCP and help grow our membership.  Being the main organization solely dedicated to clinical pharmacy, on a campus which is so connected to its hospital, really provides us an opportunity to develop our organization.  This will allow SCCP to expand upon what we are able to do to help the community, better our students, and impact the pharmacy profession.

 


Practice and Research Network (PRN) Chair: Lindsey Skubitz, DPH-2

As the SCCP PRN chair I promote student research at the School of Pharmacy. I work with faculty to establish relationships between SCCP members and research and career mentors in various clinical pharmacy settings. I also organize and lead the annual Pharm.D. and Pharm-Tox Research Symposium at the UW-Madison School of Pharmacy to promote the research of all students. I look forward to growing the symposium so that more types of research are presented with the hopes of facilitating discussions between attendees and presenters. I also hope to increase the member involvement with the SCCP journal club to further develop our analytical and communication skills.


 

Historian: Andrea Gray, DPH-2

As the Historian of SCCP we are responsible for creation and updating of the website with new information for the organization. This can include small updates such as meeting times, or the creation of new pages to share information with our members. I also work to post updates to the SCCP Facebook page regarding events and meetings. Another aspect of this position includes creation of newsletters that are published to the general membership that highlights past and future events and activities of SCCP. As SCCP becomes more established, I am hoping to create a history file that highlights the events of the organization.

I hope to further develop the SCCP website by featuring current pharmacists who are national members of ACCP. I am also hoping to develop a member spot light portion of the website where current students will be featured to display what they are doing to prepare for jobs and residencies.

 


Secretary: Rangana Milone, DPH-3

As the secretary of SCCP, my primary role is to take notes at all meetings and email meeting minutes so that our members can stay up to date on the happenings of our organization. Additionally, I will be responsible for submitting announcements for the School of Pharmacy weekly email and assisting the other executive board members with the mentorship program and other projects as they come up. My goal for this year is to work with the executive board to continue to grow our mentorship program, to network with clinical pharmacists in the Madison area, and to provide volunteer and engagement opportunities for our members.

 


Student Liaison: Daniel Mobley, DPH-3

As the student liaison for SCCP, I serve as the primary contact between ACCP (national chapter) and SCCP (student chapter). My responsibilities include sharing student related information about ACCP to the members to seek opportunities for student involvement as well as communicating chapter activities back to ACCP. Also, I represent SCCP in School of Pharmacy Student Senate and attend monthly Student Senate meetings to discuss various activities occurring within the school and other organizations. I look forward to being a voice for all SCCP members at Student Senate meetings this upcoming school year.

 


Kick-It-To-Cancer Chair: Larissa Gabler, DPH-2

The Kick-It-To-Cancer Chair has the responsibility of creating and maintaining relationships within the Madison community, especially as it pertains to those who have been affected by cancer. This position aims to build a long-lasting relationship with the UW Carbone Cancer Center through fundraising and volunteering events. An additional responsibility of this position includes planning and organizing the annual apparel fundraiser. As the current KITC chair, I hope to get more SCCP members involved in volunteering and fundraising events that are put on through the UW Carbone Cancer Center and to better develop a relationship with this organization.

 


Treasurer: Eng Chang, DPH-2

As the treasurer for the SCCP organization, my responsibilities include:

  • Promoting fiscal responsibility for the organization
  • Ensuring that we have adequate funding for our events
  • Exhibiting stewardship of resources in planning for future events
  • Maintaining the financial history in our credit union accounts
  • Preparing annual budget for upcoming spending
  • Supporting other board members as needed

For the 2017-2018 school year, I hope to evaluate the meetings, fundraising activities, and events throughout the year and see how we can make them better, increase member involvement in these activities, and promote SCCP throughout the school of pharmacy.


Outreach Chair: Abby Sharpe, DPH-3

arsharpeAs the Outreach Chair for SCCP, my responsibilities include organizing and coordinating the SCCP mentorship program, and establishing new community relationships to provide members additional opportunities for community engagement.
