Michele A. Poepping-Faulkner, PharmD, was among 25 pharmacists who practice in hospitals, ambulatory care clinics, and other settings were named Fellows of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in recognition of the excellence they have achieved in pharmacy practice. The 2017 Fellows were recognized during the ASHP Summer Meetings and Exhibition in Minneapolis on June 6.

The ASHP Practitioner Recognition Program rewards excellence in pharmacy practice by granting recognition through the FASHP designation. Members who have achieved FASHP status have successfully demonstrated sustained commitment or contributions to excellence in practice for at least 10 years, contributed to the total body of knowledge in the field, demonstrated active involvement and leadership in ASHP, and have been actively involved in and committed to educating practitioners and others. The program has recognized 900 Fellows since it began in 1988.
