PSW Receives Highest Association Award!
PSW has been selected by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) as a recipient of the association industry's highest award, a 2014 ASAE Power of A Summit Award. PSW was the only state-based association recognized by ASAE, along with 5 national associations.
ASAE described the award and outlined the recognition for PSW's lead role in coordinating efforts with physicians and other caregivers, as well as redefining the role of the pharmacist for the Wisconsin consumers who are most vulnerable to medication-use problems, including the poor and frail elderly. Through the WPQC, pharmacists have provided tens of thousands of health care services to Wisconsin consumers, more than 1,000 pharmacists in the state have been certified and nearly half of the state's pharmacies are accredited program partners.
PSW Executive Vice President, Chris Decker, and PSW President-elect, Pat Cory, will receive the award on behalf of the organization at a special ceremony in Washington, DC in October.
