It has been a pleasure serving as the KCHP Director of Government Affairs for the last 18 months. During this time, I have been able to combine my roles in Kansas policy/government to my role on an ASHP Council. Being a member of the Council on Pharmacy Management, I was invited to participate in the 2016, 2017, and 2018 ASHP Policy Week. Not only were we able to visit with state legislators on Capitol Hill to discuss legislation related to pharmacist provider status, but I also worked to develop policies that the House of Delegates would discuss and vote on. Seeing the policy creation and development has been an eye-opening experience which would support my role as a Kansas Delegate. I would be honored to serve as the Kansas HOD representative to represent your views and experiences to ASHP.
