“ACCP membership did not only allow me to interact and network with established and diverse Members of the ACCP but also allowed me to give back to the new Members and colleagues who are trying to find their way to contribute to the community. Reflecting on my experience as part of the Education Committee, I have the opportunity to contribute to the development of educational programs and also stay up to date with recent publications in The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. With an inclusive vision, ACCP is the place where I can find what suits my career needs and agrees with my goals. It continues to be an absolute privilege to be part of such a dynamic, diverse, clinical pharmacology dedicated organization.”
