VSHP Grants 2022 Recipients

12/07/2022 11:07 AM | Steve Glass (Administrator)

This past year, $10,000, had been set aside for its grants program. This program allows VSHP members to apply for a grant in order to fund a project which will improve health - system pharmacy services and patient care in Virginia. There are several conditions that must be met for a successful grant application. The Grants Committee is proud to announce the grant proposals that were selected this year: 

  • Rebecca Collins (VCU) was awarded a grant to help pay for monitoring supplies, such as blood pressure cuffs, for a program that will utilize pharmacy students and residents to provide health screenings to the homeless population in the greater Richmond area.  This has been set up as an approved service learning opportunity through VCU School of Pharmacy.
  • Caitlin Prather (INOVA) was awarded a grant to help optimize care for patients undergoing PrEP therapy at an increased risk for osteoporosis. A peripheral bone densitometer will be purchased to help monitor bone health in this patient population.
  • Jennifer Purdy (Riverside) was awarded a grant to expand a pilot program to improve the quality of life for older adults. A comprehensive medication management (CMM) program will be conducted and enable individuals to receive one-on-one education and tailored advice from a pharmacist.

Congratulations to the awardees!
