Caroline D. Juran, BSPharm, DPh (Hon), presented the President’s Address during the 118th Annual Meeting:
“Good morning! I am so pleased to stand before you in person today. What a privilege it is to work with such innovative and resilient colleagues, from the members of my own board of pharmacy, to the executive committee of this Association, to the awesome NABP staff, guests and colleagues representing other health care organizations, and to all of you — the members that make NABP’s mission a reality every day. In the face of the pandemic, we’ve achieved so much together to protect public health, even if from behind our computer screens at times. In fact, just being able to convene our meeting here this week is a testament to all your efforts that expanded our vision to advance the protection of public health. Efforts such as regulations related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) testing and vaccination by pharmacy personnel, temporary licensure of nonresident pharmacists to address shortages, and other COVID-19 mitigation and safety protocols are some of the many ways we as the pharmacy regulatory community are helping our country move out of the pandemic. It’s happening because of your efforts. Please take a moment to recognize this accomplishment.”
