Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists (SSHP)
President:  Hannah Suh
Advisor:  Dr. Rayanne Story

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) is the 30,000-member national professional association that represents pharmacists who practice in hospitals, health maintenance organizations, home care agencies, long-term facilities, and other components of health systems.  An important element in achieving the goals of the ASHP is providing a mechanism at every school of pharmacy whereby students are afforded increased opportunities to learn about pharmacy practice health systems.  ASHP believes this is best achieved through the establishment of student societies of health-system pharmacy, directly affiliated with the respective ASHP Affiliated State Chapter and closely linked to programs, services, and activities of the ASHP Pharmacy Student Forum.
