The American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP) recognized Heather Buehrer (PharmD, ’16) with an Outstanding Student Chapter Member Award at its annual meeting in Hollywood, Florida.
“I was pretty shocked,” said Buehrer, who graduated in May from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy and works at a Costco pharmacy in the Kansas City area. “I feel honored other students saw me as a role model and leader and deserving of this award.”
This award recognizes a student who has enhanced student involvement from his or her chapter in ACCP at the local, state or national level, and who has expanded the presence of ACCP through community engagement, education promotion, research opportunities and/or professional stewardship. The activities of the selected student address ACCP’s core values of extending the frontiers of clinical pharmacy and promoting dedication to excellence in patient care, research and education.
Buehrer served as an ACCP chapter president for two years, worked in committee roles and helped write case presentations.
