Jeff is Chair of the ASHP Government Affairs and PAC Advisory Committee for the 2017-2018 election cycle and is Immediate Past President of the Kansas Council of Health-Systems Pharmacy.
“During my time on the ASHP Government Affairs and PAC Advisory Committee and my time on the KCHP Board of Directors, I have seen firsthand the value of advocacy work and how vital it is to move the profession forward. The professional policies which come through the ASHP House of Delegates are crucial to this process. We cannot advocate on behalf of something as a profession without having strong polices which represent the voice of our members. It would be my honor to help ensure the voices of pharmacists in Kansas are heard as these policies are discussed and approved."
