Mid-South Regional Pharmacy Residents Conference 2022 logo

Welcome to the 2022 MidSouth Pharmacy Residents Conference!  

We are delighted that you would join us for this – the 13th annual MidSouth Pharmacy Residents Conference. The COVID19 pandemic has caused us to cancel (2020) and “go virtual with” (2021) previous meetings; we are glad to be able to plan to hold this meeting “live and in person,” recognizing even as we post this information that it may be necessary to shift to a virtual format if case numbers surge again as we head into March. We wish for this to be 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 this year to have as our keynote speaker a well-known leader in pharmacy practice: Dr. Marianne Ivey. Dr. Ivey has held multiple high level leadership roles in academia and health system pharmacy and has served as President of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. We are confident that Dr. Ivey 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 also go 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.

Many thanks go to the many people who have contributed to the formation and continuation of this conference. The professional collegiality of the “pharmacy community” is remarkable, and the support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is acknowledged and much appreciated!

Best wishes for your every success!
