Welcome from the Chair
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. It’s hard to believe we are already immersed in a new academic year. It has been a busy time in PACE, and we are excited to have this opportunity to highlight our faculty and students’ accomplishments.
Our division has been very active in local, state, and national meetings. We were honored to host the inaugural Research in Education Practice Symposium in May. This event provided an engaging opportunity for residents, fellows, and postgraduate trainees to present their research and projects. In August, several PACE faculty served as speakers for the 29th Annual Pharmacy Practice Seminar. Our faculty also had a strong showing at both the American Pharmacists Association Annual Meeting and Exposition and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Annual Meeting.
Hope you enjoy this issue of Keeping Up with PACE! We are looking forward to another successful and productive school year.

Jamie Shelly, PharmD
2011-2012 — UNC PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident
2012-2013 — UNC PCL Academic Fellow
Jamie Shelly, PharmD, graduated from Purdue University School of Pharmacy in 2011. After graduation she worked in a community pharmacy in Illinois where she also completed her APPE academic rotation. It was during this time that Shelly discovered she had a passion for community and outpatient care and teaching which led her to pursue a UNC PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency through UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. She was named a resident for the 2011-2012 academic year.
During Shelly’s year-long residency with Kerr Drug, she also served as a teaching assistant at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy’s Pharmaceutical Care Lab (PCL). Shelly had such a positive experience, that she decided to pursue the UNC Academic Fellowship in PCL, which she was awarded in 2012. As a fellow, Shelly co-coordinated the development of PHCY 404 by developing the foundation for the course and advancing its curricular development, research and scholarship. She then taught all five lab courses throughout the curriculum.
Shelly is now serving as Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice at St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) where she is responsible for coordinating their nonprescription medication and drug information course, teaching introduction to pharmacy and skills lab courses, serving as a faculty mentor to students entering pharmacy school, and acting as preceptor for APPE students. Along with her academic appointment, Shelly is a practicing pharmacist with Shop ‘n Save Pharmacies where she visits multiple pharmacy locations to provide one-on-one diabetes education with patients, delivers medication therapy management services, and works toward expanding clinical pharmaceutical services within the company. When asked about her experiences at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, Shelly stated that, “The educational opportunities I received as a post graduate at UNC were tremendous. The well-developed infrastructure for their post graduate training programs and community pharmacy outreach prepared me to be a broad contributor to an array of areas at STLCOP and within the profession.”

Research in Education Practice Symposium (REPS)
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy hosted its inaugural Research in Education and Practice Symposium on May 16, 2014. The symposium provided an engaging opportunity for residents, fellows, and postgraduate pharmacy trainees to present their research and projects. The seventy-seven attendees represented ten institutions and presented a wealth of scholarship spanning sixteen podiums and twenty-one posters.
The symposium offered two professional development seminars titled “Financial Strategies for Retirement” presented by Eric Chetwood and “An Introduction to Scholarship, Meeting Abstract Writing and Publication” presented by Denise Rhoney.
Angela Kashuba, Vice-Chair for Research and Graduate Education at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy’s Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics presented the keynote speech, “World’s Colliding: When Preparation Meets Opportunity.”
Pharmacy Practice Seminar
The 29th Annual Pharmacy Practice Seminar was held August 23 & 24, 2014 in Wrightsville Beach, NC preceded by a Diabetes Certificate Program and Immunization Updates program on August 22, 2014. Approximately 200 participants attended these programs with UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy faculty that included Josh Guffey, Charlene Williams, Debra Kemp, Macary Marciniak, Ouita Gatton, Ashley Branham, Amanda Corbett, Pete Koval, Stefanie Ferreri, Jay Campbell, Bob Shrewsbury, and Jamie Cavanaugh. The speakers did a fantastic job of engaging the audience with active learning and program evaluations by attendees gave the speakers high marks.
Next year’s program will be the 30th anniversary of this event and there is a special keynote speaker already lined up for the program.
