Welcome to the 2024 MidSouth Pharmacy Residents Conference!
We are delighted that you would join us for the 15th annual MidSouth Pharmacy Residents Conference. We hope this is a memorable meeting during which new knowledge and approaches to training and practice are shared, and in which professional relationships are begun and enhanced. The opportunity to present the results of your work to an audience of peers is an important part of our professional collaboration and is foundational in the propagation of meaningful knowledge. The occasion of this meeting also draws individuals together who might not otherwise have an opportunity to interact.
We are excited to have Dr. William Greene as our keynote speaker this year. Dr. Greene has held multiple high level leadership roles in health-system pharmacy, most recently as the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In 2009, not long after he began his tenure at St. Jude, Dr. Greene founded this conference and we are very happy he has returned this year as our keynote speaker. We are confident that Dr. Greene will inspire all of us to develop professionally and personally.
Congratulations to you, Residents, who have invested so much of yourselves to develop a proposal, design methods, collect and analyze data, form conclusions and generate recommendations. Many thanks to Preceptors and Program Directors who have served as project advisors and mentors, and who have provided encouragement and guidance to these residents in this work.
A final thanks to those who have contributed to the formation and continuation of this conference, including the support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The professional collegiality of our pharmacy community is remarkable and much appreciated.
See you at the conference!
