January’s Networking Dinner Program took place at Orsay Restaurant. President, Dr. Yi Guo, thanked Novartis for sponsoring the evening’s event. President Guo welcomed our guest speaker Dr. Douglas Jennings, Clinical Pharmacy Manager of Heart Transplant and Mechanical Support at the New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Dr. Jennings presented the management of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction with Entresto (sacubitil/valsartan). Entresto is indicated for use in patients with NYHA class II-IV heart failure. Dr. Jennings highlighted Entresto’s indication, dosing regimen, contraindications, warnings and precautions, major adverse effects, and drug interactions.
The audience was actively engaged throughout the entire presentation. Student pharmacists and pharmacists actively participated in answering questions provided by case presentations involving the use of Entresto.
The dinner concluded with announcements from Dr. Yi Guo on NYCSHP’s upcoming events.
