Last week Cathy, Gonsha and I attended the annual American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Meeting in National Harbor, MD, near Washington D.C. I was so happy to be able to present a talk on the work I’ve been doing in Uganda, specifically the Pharmaceutical Care Training Program in the USA (PCTP), which Cathy and Gonsha are currently part of, as well as the Pharmaceutical Care curriculum I helped to develop for Makerere University’s Undergraduate Pharmacy program with the help of the Fulbright Specialist Program grant. The talk was well-attended and Gonsha told me afterwards that she was impressed with how engaged the audience seemed to be.
I was thrilled to have several people come up to talk to me about my work as well as some who are potential collaborators for the future! It was just a big coincidence that PCTP was going on right now and that the conference was only driving distance (4 hours) from Wilkes-Barre, PA, so I capitalized on that and was able to bring along Cathy and Gonsha. Not only were they able to attend part of the conference, my talk, and do some networking of their own, but they also had a chance to do some sightseeing in Washington D.C.
