Highlight video from the 50th FSHP Annual Meeting (2016)
In August 2016, FSHP held the 50th FSHP Annual Meeting! Over 1,100 pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy students joined us in celebrating our 50th annual meeting to "Go for the Gold". This year we returned to the Renaissance Resort at SeaWorld® (where we have been many times before) and the FSHPGO! mobile app was again a big hit.
Our Keynote speaker was the ASHP Immediate Past President John Armitstead who talked about the Evolution of Pharmacy: Past, Present and Future. Another crowd favorite (highest engagement in the app) was the Standards of Practice for the Dispensing of Controlled Substances for Treatment of Pain session presented by Norman Tomaka & Mark Mikhael (the last session of the 50th FSHP Annual Meeting held on Sunday).
Many attendees took advantage of the Evening in the Park event at SeaWorld® on Saturday night to unwind and have some fun; including the One Ocean® show, the exciting Mako™ rollercoaster, and a picnic style dinner.
To match our "Go for the Gold" theme, some exhibitors gave out golden tickets to attendees who visited their booth. From these gold tickets we pulled 9 winners:
Susan Mitchelson ended up being the points leader in the app and won complimentary registration for our 2017 Annual Meeting. Susan along with Darren Davis and Cheryl Elton rounded out the top 3 most influential attendees in the FSHPGO! mobile app.
Attendees had lots of options to earn C.E. credits and gained a lot from the educational session, but more people bookmarked and checked-in to the Pharmacy Law Update session than any other session in the app.
