Greetings from the Oncology PSN Chair – Amy Smith-Morris

CSHP has an Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Network! It does not matter to what level or degree you work with people with cancer, you are welcome to join this PSN. 

As cancer care continues to evolve there are new clinical questions popping up all the time.  Feel free to post and connect with your colleagues across the country.
