Abilene Faculty Help Make Antibiotic Review Successful

TTSSHP Antibiotic ReviewThe Texas Tech Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists (also known as TTSSHP or Double T) held its annual Antibiotic Review Jan. 9 for students on all School of Pharmacy campuses. Assistant Professors Chris Tawwater, Pharm.D., and Jennifer Grelle, Pharm.D., from the Abilene campus served as presenters for the Review.

In his presentation, Dr. Tawwater reviewed the classes of antibiotics and the coverage of specific agents. Dr. Grelle presented updates to recent guidelines and discussed their importance to clinical practice. A post-Review survey was sent to those who attended the presentations so that future presentations can be customized to address the needs of those students.

The annual Antibiotic Review was the topic of TTSSHP’s Student Society Poster Project that was submitted Dec. 4 at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ Midyear Clinical Meeting in Las Vegas. At the Student Society Showcase, members of TTSSHP presented a poster displaying data from the past Antibiotic Review and gave ideas for implementing a similar program for pharmacy schools around the United States.

TTSSHP is very grateful for Dr. Grelle and Dr. Tawwater hosting this year and providing this informative and helpful presentation for students at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy. The TTSSHP officer team is eager to begin planning next year’s event and we look forward to another successful Antibiotic Review!
