WASHINGTON — The American Pharmacists Association has a new president-elect, the group said Thursday.
The APhA announced the election of Matthew Osterhaus, who will succeed Steven Simenson at the conclusion of the 2014 APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition in Orlando, Fla., on March 31, 2014. Osterhaus is the co-owner of Osterhaus Pharmacy in Maquoketa, Iowa, and an APhA trustee.
The group also elected to three-year terms on the APhA board of trustees Nancy Alvarez, of Oxford, Pa., the director of medical information at Endo Pharmaceuticals; and Ronald Small of Advance, N.C., a medication management consultant at Joint Commission Resources. Alvarez and Small will begin their terms in March 2013. The group also elected as its honorary president Norman Campbell, a professor of pharmacy administration at the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy. All will be installed at the APhA's 160th annual meeting in Los Angeles next March.
