Collin Clark, PharmD, clinical assistant professor, Department of Pharmacy Practice, is the recipient of the New York State Council of Health-system Pharmacists (NYSCHP) New Practitioner Award for 2023.
This prestigious award recognizes an individual pharmacist for their leadership, vision and continuous contribution to the practice of pharmacy in New York State in their first 1-5 years after formal education or residency training and intends to foster involvement from the beginning of one’s career.
Clark has been a member of NYSCHP since 2017. His research focuses on the implementation and assessment of pharmacist provided clinical services. He has a particular interest in studying the pharmacist’s role in transitional care management across the continuum of care and medication optimization strategies for older adults with complex medical conditions. Clark is also a member of Team Alice, an interprofessional initiative to protect older adults from medication related harm.
Along with the award, Clark will receive complimentary registration to the NYSCHP Annual Assembly to be held in Saratoga, NY from April 20-23. He will be presented with the award on April 23.
“I am truly honored to receive this award,” says Clark. “I have been fortunate to work with amazing pharmacists in Buffalo and across the state through my involvement with the Council and this has helped shape my identity as an early career practitioner. I look forward to continuing to grow in my career and involvement with NYSCHP.”
The mission of NYSCHP is to represent its members and advance pharmacy as an essential component of health care.
