My name is Ricky Ogden and I’m currently serving as the Director of Education for KCHP. I’m very excited to announce that our KCHP-sponsored events will grow from 1 to 4 during the 2017-2018 year! These events will be the Annual Spring Meeting which is a joint meeting with MSHP, Preceptor Bootcamp, Rural Hospital Pharmacy Summit, and Technician Conference. This is a tremendous accomplishment for KCHP and many thanks to those who worked so hard to get these events planned and executed! We need volunteers to help coordinate our 2018 events. If you are interested in serving on the planning committee for any of the events below, please contact me vial email or phone.
