December Networking CE with Royals

NYCSHP and Royal Counties Chapters came together at Scaletta Ristorante in the Upper West Side for the last CE Program of 2016!

The program kicked off with a great clinical pearl by Julia Sessa, PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Resident at Winthrop University Hospital. She presented on the topic “Chronic Hepatitis C.” Julia provided an excellent overview on how to treat different patient populations with varying hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes.

With the holiday season in full swing, NYCSHP and Royals participated in the Toys for Tots Drive! Members donated a variety of unwrapped toys to provide gifts to less fortunate children for Christmas. This is one of the many ways NYCSHP took an active role and made contributions towards the community this year!
