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: Jared Baxa, DPH-3

As president, I work with the executive committee and general membership

to plan for the organization’s future. I collaborate with the president-elect to organize executive board and general member meetings throughout the se

mester. During the fall, I represented the organization at the ACCP Global Clinical Pharmacy Meeting and encouraged other members to become more involved with the national organization. A majority of my role involves strategic planning using forward-thinking and problem-solving skills to establish a solid foundation for SCCP to grow upon. During the 2016-2017 school year, I hope to get our mentorship program set up and running as well as work to create a research connection with the UW Hospital and Clinics.


President Elect: Naomi Do, 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 exciting 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.

In the near future, I am hoping to establish a journal club. After participating the Clinical Research Challenge from SCCP, both local and national, I realize that reading scientific articles on a regular basis is very important. One important aspect of being a clinical pharmacist is working well on a team and continuously learning about new knowledge and information. It is also our responsibility to keep learning from outside sources, join together to strengthen our organization and learn from each other through a journal club.  This way, our relationship within SCCP can be strengthened, and most importantly, we can learn from each other and keep up with the new literature just how clinical pharmacists would.


Practice and Research Network (PRN) Chair: Katie Morgan, DPH-3

As the SCCP PRN chair I promote student research at the School of Pharmacy in the following ways:

  1. I Work with faculty to establish relationships between SCCP members and research and career mentors in various clinical pharmacy areas of interest.
  2. I Organize and lead the first annual Pharm.D. and Pharm-Tox Research Symposium at the UW-Madison School of Pharmacy to promote the research of all students.

I’m excited to continue encouraging student research by coordinating this upcoming spring’s PharmD and Pharm-Tox Research Symposium, and I also hope to start an SCCP journal club where students can practice presenting and discussing articles with their peers.


Clinical Pharmacy Challenge (CPC) Chair: Sharon Kim, DPH-2

The Clinical Pharmacy Challenge (CPC) chair coordinates the Clinical Pharmacy Challenge and the Clinical Research Challenge for SCCP. The chair communicates with each challenge’s respective faculty advisor to determine the date, room, and other logistics of the challenge. For the Clinical Research Challenge this year the chair had to make a drug literature presentation as well. The CPC chair also attends the executive board meetings, general meetings, and assists with other SCCP activities such as apparel sales. I hope to bring students together to test their knowledge in the SCCP challenges as well as help SCCP develop further as an organization.

 


Historian: Briana Amundson, DPH-3

As the Co-Historians 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. We 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, we are hoping to create a scrapbook 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: Heather Champion, 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 Co-Chairs: Marklie Munroe, DPH-3

The Kick It to Cancer chair position has a unique opportunity to establish connections within the community we live, with a focus on cancer-related topics. Though my positions, I aim to create and maintain a meaningful relationship with UW Carbone Cancer Center through volunteer events and fundraising. The KITC chair advocates, supports, and raises money for cancer research. I am looking forward to bringing new volunteer opportunities to our members and building on our relationship with Carbone Cancer Center!

Outreach Chair: Abby Sharpe, DPH-2

arsharpeThe Outreach Chair is responsible for establishing new community relationships with local organizations and individuals to provide additional opportunities for community engagement. The chair will need to be outgoing and willing to network with new contacts to help build a long-lasting relationship which will benefit SCCP-UW members in the future. This year I hope to help get the mentorship program up and running, as well as plan a social for researchers and interested students to network. I’m excited to see what the year brings!
