Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy’s Lisa Lubsch has been named a Fellow in the Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group.
A clinical professor in the SOP Department of Pharmacy Practice, Lubsch is also a clinical pharmacy specialist at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis. She provides care to children with cystic fibrosis and other pulmonary problems.
The Fellow in the Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group Recognition Program recognizes excellence in pediatric pharmacy practice by acknowledging and promoting public awareness of pharmacists who have distinguished themselves in pediatric pharmacy practice.
”PPAG is my professional home for networking and learning about children,” Lubsch said. “I am honored to join a fellowship of the most incredible pediatric pharmacists.”
Previously, Lubsch was president of the organization and appointed to lead the Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group-University initiative in 2015. She has directed section leaders from 15 areas of expertise in the field of pediatric pharmacy. The advocacy group is a central hub for educational courses, conferences, programs and information designed to support board certification of pediatric pharmacists.
“Dr. Lubsch joined the School of Pharmacy early in its development and has been instrumental in the success of the pediatric specialization for students,” said Mark Luer, the school’s interim dean. “Her efforts have long been valued locally, and now she is being recognized nationally for her impact on the professional community as a whole.
“Dr. Lubsch joins a select group of pharmacy practitioners who have received this national recognition, which reflects not only her talent and efforts, but also the quality of the faculty that the School has attracted over the years. We are quite fortunate to have her as a leader in our program.”
