We are so proud of our members this past month!! Our chapter implemented committees to allow our members to be more involved. After our spring membership drive, we had more than ten members register for a SNPhA membership. We have greater than twenty members registered to attend the SNPhA Regional conference. So glad that we are growing from our roots!!!

Three pharmacy students reviewed charts of 5 patients at the Equal access Birmingham acute care clinic. We were able to assist medical students and a physician by helping make recommendations and implementing a plan for each patient. As the medication experts, we were able to identify major medication errors and make adjustments to medications. Here are some of the problems we identified:
-Patient was still taking two medications that were supposed to be discontinued on her profile
-Patient seemed to be taking Prazosin for his blood pressure with no known BPH diagnosis in his chart; we recommended he be a first line regime of lisinopril or losartan
-Patient has had a coughing symptom for several past visits. We identified it could be related to her losartan or heart failure. She also needed additional heart failure medications added to her regime
-Patient is on a combination of depression medications and an antipsychotic. We recommended trying to discontinue one of the antidepressants if the patient could tolerate it. The patient also needs to be monitored and aware of adverse reactions with his antidepressants and antipsychotic medications.

SNPhA was pleased to welcome to Samford's campus, Dr. Helen McKnight. President Laurel Uhomba introduced the speaker and announced upcoming events and important updates. Students were hyped up about the upcoming SNPhA Regional Conference and were given more details about that. Dr. McKnight is the Director of Pharmacy at Princeton Baptist Medical Center and was the first board certified sterile compounding pharmacist in the state of Alabama. Dr. McKnight prepared and presented a speech about the pharmacists' role in serving underserved populations. The students were very engaged and asked several questions about Dr. McKnight's experience and ideas for how students could better serve their community. Students stayed after and talked with Dr. McKnight about residency programs, internships, and many more opportunities she is associated with. SNPhA Officers worked with Chick-fil-A to provide a meal to over 45 students for the February Chapter Meeting.
