  • KPhA in the News

    • Tuesday, December 6, 2022

    The Association has been hitting the pavement, press, and airwaves to ensure the Voice of Kentucky Pharmacists--ALL Pharmacists--is heard loud and clear. From publishing the most recent issue of The Kentucky Pharmacist Journal (6 hours of CE) to Kentucky making statewide and national news (we were in The Wall Street Journal, y'all!) as the first state to authorize pharmacists to provide Colorectal Cancer Screening Services to a Podcast episode with Dr. Ben Mudd on the legislative steps being taken to improve retail pharmacy work conditions, it's been a busy few weeks at KPhA. Below are a few media highlights:

  • Pharmacy Enrollment Request for KPERF Colorectal Cancer Screening Grant

    • Tuesday, December 6, 2022

    The first pharmacist-led colorectal cancer (CRC) screening via a non-invasive stool-based test in the nation recently occurred at Capital Pharmacy & Medical Equipment in Frankfort, Kentucky, last month. In a significant show of support, the Kentucky Association of Health plans (KAHP) awarded Kentucky Pharmacists Education and Research Foundation a $50,000 grant to expand access to these life-saving screenings throughout Kentucky.

  • The Fall Journal has ARRIVED!

    Even though we are taught from an early age that any form of procrastinating is a bad habit, we've all waited until the 11th hour to get started on a project (*raises hand). Some psychologists reference Yerkes-Dodson Law citing an empirical relationship between pressure and performance--nervous energy or anxiety can actually improve outcomes. Yet, it's also true that if you wait too long, you'll be overwhelmed by stress leaving you too frantic to work. It's all about the timing in life, right?!
