As we enter this season of gratitude and thanks, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of you, my colleagues, peers, and donors of the CPNP Foundation. My term as CPNP Foundation Board president is coming to a close at the end of 2021, and I could not be more proud of what has been accomplished in the past two years. We have set our strategic direction, realigning the CPNP Foundation with our parent organization. We have streamlined our goals, priorities, and our efforts to make as big of an impact that we can for our patients and the psychiatric pharmacy profession. I am excited for the future and to see all of the amazing things that the Foundation accomplishes. With such an amazing group of supporters, I know the Foundation will be in good hands with our incoming Foundation Board president, Chris Thomas, PharmD, BCPP. Read more.
