Quick, off topic post today. I am very excited tonight. A few other pharmacists and I have just submitted a paper for review to the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association (JAPhA). The project it entailed actually began when I was a student. A then fellow classmate (now fellow graduate) of mine has piloted a lot of the study. We’re all very eager to hear if it’s accepted or not. I’ll let you guys know if it’s published! ^_^

A New Endeavor


Hello everyone! I’m back from vacation! I’ll be back to posting pharmacy entries soon enough, but I wanted to let you guys know about a little side project of mine.

A fun fact about me is I have been involved in long distance running since I was 10 years old. I have always enjoyed the endorphin rush I get from pushing my body to its physical limits. I haven’t been actively running or training for the past few years, but recently decided to get back into it. I set a goal of completing a half marathon (13.1 miles) this fall. I am going to be documenting my progress on another blog (RPharrier). Check it out if you want. Hopefully, I will continue to train for longer races after this one. If I do, I will continue to use that blog. This will be my only little advertisement of my other blog I will post on here, but a link to it will always be on the sidebar.

So, here’s my question to you guys. It seems like every pharmacist out there has his/her own way of dealing with the pent up frustration and stress that accompanies our profession (regardless of what area you practice in). What is YOUR personal stress reliever? Leave me a comment letting me know. =)
