We want to share news that Dan Ashby will be officially retiring as Vice President for Pharmacy Services for the Johns Hopkins Health System. Dan’s last day with the organization will be July 1, 2020. As you may know, Dan has been an SMSHP member for many years and served in the past as President of the organization.
To help create a lasting legacy of Dan’s innumerable contributions to pharmacy practice, the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) Foundation has created the Daniel M. Ashby Fund for Excellence in Pharmacy Residency Training. A description of this planned fund is attached for your information.
We hope that you might kindly consider joining in making a meaningful contribution to this special fund in Dan’s honor to the ASHP Foundation. Your donation would be a wonderful tribute to Dan’s career and his enormous impact on pharmacy practice.
We hope to raise an initial $250,000 for the fund. And with your help, we can truly make a difference in pharmacy residency training through initiatives such as awards to recognize and disseminate best practices in pharmacy residency training, grants to expand pharmacy residency positions, or support for access, development, and delivery of distance education programs for pharmacy residency preceptors and program directors.
If you would like, you can donate to the Ashby Fund securely online through the ASHP Foundation website, or you can complete and return the attached form which can be used to make a pledge that can be paid over the months ahead or over the next few years. Your gift is tax-deductible.
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration of this request.
