The New York City and Royal Counties chapters gathered at IL Cortile in Little Italy, Manhattan, for the first combined networking dinner program (sponsored by Merek). President Dr. Yi Guo welcomed members to the event and conveyed her gratitude towards having the opportunity to host an event that allows us to strengthen our inter-chapter relations.
This program was presented by Dr. Sandeep Nathan and was titled, “Understanding the Ongoing Risk of Atherothrombosis Beyond the Culprit of Lesion”. The networking dinner program created the perfect ambiance for pharmacists, pharmacy residents, and student pharmacists to merge and build friendships. The evening started with members greeting each other and enjoying the delicious family-style served antipasta.
This collaborative event had an excellent turnout. Members expressed that they enjoyed their meals while learning from Dr. Sandeep Nathan speak about the risk of myocardial infarctions. After the wonderful presentation, members continued to network. The environment was filled with great spirit and embodied unity. Former colleagues reconnected, the NYC chapter joined forces with the Royal Counties chapter, and student pharmacists and residents networked and collaborated.
This event was a great platform to meet new people and for connections. We are excited for the upcoming combined-chapter networking programs!
