President's Message from Davina Dell-Steinbeck, PharmD, BCPS
“Bloom where you are planted.” - 1 Corinthians 7:20-24
It’s Springtime! I enjoy most everything about Spring. It is a time of renewal. I love the temperatures warming up, the days getting longer, the return of baseball, and everything blooming. Springtime also means Spring Meeting, Match Day, Legislative Day and Residency Research Conferences. These are some of my favorite experiences throughout the year. Spring Meeting means that I get to see my friends (even if it is virtually) and partake in great programming. The programming at Spring Meeting never lets me down. I always learn something and always bring back a new idea to implement at my hospital. As an RPD, Match Day is always nerve wracking and exciting. I love getting to see who my next set of residents will be and begin to plan their year. Legislative Day helps us advocate for pharmacy and move our profession forward. Residency Research Conferences let me see the awesome projects that are being done and gives me ideas to bring back to my hospital. Springtime is also when MSHP has our election. It is always exciting to see who our next leaders will be.
Last Spring, our world changed with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. We were naïve to what our futures held. I think very few of us thought that we would have two virtual Spring Meetings in a row. I know I thought for sure that we would be able to be together this year. I never thought that my entire presidential term would be “virtual.” As I reflect over the past year, I am proud of what I’ve seen pharmacist across this state accomplish. To name just a few things, we have stepped up and learned how to treat an entirely new disease so that we could take the best care of our patients, we’ve kept up with the huge amount of literature that has been published, and we have led the vaccination effort. We should be proud of these accomplishments. We have bloomed where we were planted.
