ASHP Foundation: 2021 Literature Awards
The ASHP Foundation congratulates the recipients of the 2021 Literature Awards. Since 1971, this awards program has recognized significant contributions to the biomedical literature by pharmacists. In addition to the Award for Sustained Contributions, a lifetime achievement award, the program recognizes authors of impactful published research that demonstrate the value of the pharmacy workforce to patient care and outcomes in four distinct categories: Drug Therapy Research, Pharmacy Practice Research, Innovation in Pharmacy Practice and Student Research.
