The Kansas Pharmacists Association Education Committee is pleased to announce the continuing education sessions for the 2022 KPhA Annual Meeting & Trade Show, which takes place Sept. 23-24 in Topeka. Twenty-one classes will be offered over three days, with up to 12 CE hours available to both pharmacists and technicians. Topics range from Immunizations to Remote Patient Monitoring, Mediation Diversion to Succession Planning, and Adverse Drug Events to Interviewing. Registration for the event will open later this month.

KPhA welcomes Kim Colegrove, founder of the Pause First Academy, as the Keynote on Saturday. Kim turned heartache into action when her husband David took his own life three months after retiring from a 30-year career in law enforcement. She channeled her grief into journey of discovery of how long-term and chronic exposure to trauma impacts first responders and front-line workers. Pause First Academy is dedicated to helping frontline workers through resilience training, with a focus on holistic wellness, and work-life balance. Following the keynote, Kim will provide the Lunch and Learn session on meditation.
