March was a very exciting month for MEPSHP. On March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, we had our first social event. 19 members and their families attended the Lehigh Valley Phantoms game at the PPL Center in Allentown, PA. Everyone had a great time, and the Phantoms beat the Providence Bruins 3 to nothing. We are looking forward to having another social event this summer.

On Thursday, March 22nd, we had our March CE/dinner meeting at the Hamilton Kitchen and Bar in Allentown, PA. The meeting started with a promotional talk on palliative care in cancer, sponsored by TEVA Oncology. Following the promotional talk, we were honored to have a one hour pain CE on opioid conversions conducted by Dr. Maria Foy. Maria Foy is a clinical specialist in palliative care at Abington Memorial Hospital, and she did a wonderful job in helping us better understanding opioid conversions. We have previously heard her talk on neuropathic pain, and we look forward to hearing more of her lectures in the future.

On Thursday, April 19th, we will have a one-hour CE from ISMP on international safety. More information will be available next week. Stay tuned. 

Happy Easter and Passover. See you in April,

Jeneane Acker, PharmD, MBA
MEPSHP President
