Upcoming ALSHP Meetings in 2014
A Message from the Executive Directors:
The 2013 Annual Clinical Meeting received over 100 pharmacists, students, and technicians at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham – Wynfrey Hotel on October 18th. The Educational Planning Committee and Council on Educational Affairs developed an excellent program for attendees. During the business session lunch, the Board of Directors gave their reports for the past year, new officers were installed for the coming year, and the 2013 awards were presented. Congratulations to our award winners!
We are looking forward to a very active 2014. There are a number of issues that ALHSP will be involved with legally in the state as we work with the Alabama Board of Pharmacy and other organizations in the state. The Educational Planning Committee is already hard at work putting together the 2014 Summer Meeting and Exhibit Show at the Hilton Pensacola Beach, FL on June 22-24, 2014. There will also be a great effort to enhance our online presence in 2014, and a new push to draw in more membership for the Society to strengthen our voice in Alabama. Please join us in 2014!

MEDICAID RULE CHANGES: PRESCRIPTION LIMITS
As you may know, the Alabama Medicaid Agency is proceeding with a series of rule changes that will set prescription limits on Medicaid patients. Below are links to two documents: A letter from the Board of Directors to the Agency voicing concerns regarding the proposed rule changes, and a response from the Agency to ALSHP's concerns. Please read both to fully familiarize yourself with this issue which could have a dramatic effect on health-system pharmacy practice and patient care.
