Outgoing President, Dr. Jason Babby, delivered his outgoing presidential address and recognized his Board of Directors and Committee Chairs for all of their hard work to make this a successful year. Dr. Babby highlighted his vision and goals of Pharmacy without Borders as a source of his inspiration.

In addition, under the leadership of Dr. Kanika Ballani Lala, the first chapter medical mission was organized to highlight the global impact pharmacists can have on patient care access. Dr. Babby concluded his speech by thanking chapter members for all of their support and attendance at the many programs throughout the year. Thank you Dr. Babby for an amazing year as President!

Incoming President, Dr. Karen Berger, delivered her incoming Presidential Address and spoke fondly of her new beginnings in NYCSHP to her new role as chapter president. Dr. Berger highlighted her commitment to improving advocacy efforts within New York State, creating a strong pharmacy network within the chapter, and getting more involved in community efforts as pharmacists. In part to achieve these goals, a grassroots lobbying committee was proposed to better organize lobbying efforts and encourage opportunities for involvement. Pushing forward legislation is a proactive way to advocate for key pharmacy initiatives. In addition, Dr. Berger plans to facilitate Clinical and Directors Roundtables to discuss important topics in our practice and strengthen networking. Dr. Berger concluded by thanking her supporters, including her biggest fan, her mom, and NYCSHP members. Congratulations to our new President!
