The current Board members were recognized as well as the Committee Chairs and Committee members. The Annual Report to the Membership 2013-2014 was made available on the website. This includes reports from each OSHP Board member, each OSHP Committee and the OU and SWOSU sOSHP chapters.  

A. Oklahoma Pharmacists Association
Phil Woodward, PharmD, Executive Director
1. Dr. Woodward discussed the current issue of pharmacist provider status that was recently brought before the Oklahoma Legislature. A similar bill recently passed in California so OPhA is still actively working to get this bill passed.  
2. There is also a bill for Pharmacist Provider Status in the United States House of Representatives, HB4190. HB4160 is another bill that provides for medication management.
3. OPhA is watching legislation proposed by Express Scripts and Caremark, the two primary Pharmacy Benefit Managers in Oklahoma to protect the interests of retail pharmacies.

B. Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy
Nancy Williams, PharmD, BCPS, BCNSP, FASHP
Department Chair and Associate Dean for Clinical Programs
1. Dr. Williams presented information on the Southwestern Oklahoma State College of Pharmacy activities for the past year. 

C. University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy
Tracy Hagemann, PharmD, FCCP
Professor and Director of Clinical Affairs - OUMC
1. Dr. Hagemann presented information about the OU program.

D. Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy
John Foust, PharmD, 
1. Dr. Foust presented information about the Board’s activities this past year. He thanked the people that were involved in developing the opioid prescribing guidelines.
2. He recommended that all pharmacists use caution with gray market companies: they are required to be licensed in Oklahoma. There is a new pedigree committee working on establishing procedures to track drug history and decrease counterfeit prescription medications. He warned everyone about a recycling scam that is making calls to pharmacies offering to buy manufacturer bottles. They only want to use them for fake drugs since these bottles have NDC numbers and bar codes.
3. The OSBP is sponsoring a free CE from ISMP on medication safety on June 17th and he encouraged everyone to take advantage of this opportunity.
