Andres A. Cancel, a second-year student pharmacist at Larkin University College of Pharmacy presented a research poster, titled, Empowering Pharmacy Technicians to better serve our patients, at the Florida Society of Health System Pharmacists 51st Annual Meeting held in Orlando, FL from August 4 – 6, 2017. The theme for this year’s annual meeting was Inspire, Innovate, Integrate. Mr. Cancel’s poster was a result of a research project he conducted under the Department of Pharmaceutical Science faculty member, Christiane Chbib, Pharm.D., Ph.D., who also was the co-author.

The annual meeting offers sessions in multiple tracks, including innovation in pharmacy, cardiovascular, critical care, infectious disease and pharmacy regulation. Larkin students and faculty participated in sessions across all tracks. Students were also joined by the Dean of the College, Gary M. Levin, Pharm.D., BCPP, FCCP as well as faculty members, Jordan Sedlacek, Pharm.D., BCACP, and Livia Machado, Pharm.D., Ph.D., BCPS.
