Dr. Seena Haines, professor of pharmacy practice and associate dean for faculty in Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Gregory School of Pharmacy, is one of 38 health-system pharmacists who have been given the title "Fellow" by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in recognition of the excellence they have achieved in pharmacy practice.
The 2011 Fellows will be honored on Tuesday, June 14, during the ASHP Summer Meeting in Denver, Colo.
The ASHP Practitioner Recognition Program recognizes excellence in practice and promotes public awareness of outstanding pharmacists. Each applicant’s credentials are assessed against rigorous criteria that include contributions to the scientific literature, research, education and active involvement and leadership in professional activities. Applicants also must have practiced in health-system pharmacy for at least 10 years.
"I am very honored to receive such a recognition by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists," Dr. Haines said. "I feel so blessed to have had amazing opportunities to fulfill my passion in practice by developing clinical services for underserved populations, educating students and residents, and serving to advance the profession of pharmacy through organizations such as ASHP."
The program has recognized 690 Fellows since it began in 1988.
