Dr. Anderson kindly shared her thoughts on what ACCP membership means to her: “I’m truly grateful for the American College of Clinical Pharmacology®. Throughout my graduate training and early professional career, ACCP has been an invaluable society in enabling me to learn and grow professionally. Membership in ACCP is in large part responsible for shaping my career as a young professional. I have had the privilege to serve on committees, the opportunity to network with others in the organization, attend webinars and ACCP Virtual Journal Club webinars, as well as present at conferences and publish in the journals. These experiences have been a pivotal part of my early career development. For me, one of the greatest benefits of ACCP is having the ability to connect and collaborate with so many talented individuals within the community. I look forward to future opportunities within the society and getting the chance to work with and mentor new Members.”
