On April 16th, the Delaware Valley Society of Health-System Pharmacists (DVSHP) hosted its annual Night with Industry & Student CE Presentations. Attendees included student pharmacists, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians. Each year one group of students from Jefferson College of Pharmacy, Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, and Temple School of Pharmacy are selected to develop and present a CE Presentation. This year students presented on Hepatitis C and HIV co-infection, sepsis, and naloxone use.

The first presentation of the night was showcased by Matthew Sowers from the Jefferson College of Pharmacy, presenting “A Guide to Managing Hepatitis C and HIV Coinfection”. His presentation informed the audience about the prevalence of HIV and HCV in Philadelphia and the best treatment regimens available for patients. Next, Kayla Askey and Julie Paris from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy presented “Sepsis: An Overview”. These two discussed how to acutely manage and monitor a patient with sepsis. Finally, Jenny Shi and Rohit Reddy from Temple University’s School of Pharmacy presented “Naloxone use for Opioid Overdose Reversal and Related Implications for Pharmacists”. They provided an overview of the available forms of naloxone and the impact of naloxone for the opioid epidemic in Philadelphia. Overall, the night was very enjoyable and knowledgeable.
