Phuoc Anh (Anne) Nguyen, Pharm.D., a second-year resident and student in the Pharmacy Administration and Leadership program between UH College of Pharmacy and seven fellow Texas Medical Center institutions, has received the Special Recognition Award for Organizational Service from the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
A 2013 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin School of Pharmacy in 2013, Nguyen is currently a PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Administration resident at the Michael E. Debakey Veteran Affairs Medical Center and UHCOP master's graduate student. Nguyen has been an active member in Gulf Coast Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, including appointments to the ASHP Pharmacy Practice Managers Advisory Group and the TSHP New Practitioner Section Executive Committee. Nguyen also is a member of Phi Delta Chi, Phi Lambda Sigma and other professional and volunteer service organizations.
Her areas of interest include transitions of care, clinical management, and patient safety/Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI). Following her residency, she plans to pursue a pharmacy management position or obtain a clinical pharmacist position.
"I have received many blessings from TSHP and it is my way of saying thanks and giving back to the profession by being involved with the organization," Nguyen said. "It is one of my best decisions that I had done as a student leader. I highly encourage students to be involved with TSHP due to the great leadership, networking, and mentoring opportunities. I am honor to receive the TSHP Special Recognition Award. I could not have done it without my family and the mentors in my life that have guided me through this journey. I look forward to more opportunities to give back and serve this dynamic organization.
The Special Recognition Award is a recent honor bestowed by the TSHP Board of Directors, based on recommendations of the Organizational Affairs Advisory Group.
