Brian Moe, PharmD, Receives Inaugural NHIF Scholarship Award for Excellence in Home and Specialty Infusion Pharmacy Practice
The National Home Infusion Foundation (NHIF) presented its inaugural Scholarship Award for Excellence in Home and Specialty Infusion Pharmacy Practice to Brian Moe, PharmD, Pharmacist in Charge and Clinical Infusion Pharmacist for Coram CVS/specialty infusion services in Fargo, North Dakota. Moe, a military veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm and the Persian Gulf War, also serves as a lead preceptor for fourth year professional year pharmacy students at the North Dakota State University's College of Pharmacy.
"Since joining Coram and the home infusion field seven years ago, Brian has discovered a passion for the field unlike his prior experiences in retail, hospital, and the pharmaceutical industry," explained Chris Maksym, PharmD, Chair of NHIF. "His dedication led him to immerse himself completely in the field by embracing best practices, later sharing that knowledge as a volunteer with other home care professionals, who did not fully understand the home infusion process."
"For the past five years, Brian has volunteered for HERO (Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization), a community group that collects and redistributes health care equipment to benefit those in need," Maksym added. "Under his guidance as Board Vice-Chair and Development Committee Chair, HERO is broadening its local reach to states throughout the Midwest, and supplying more and more global medical mission teams that serve underprivileged populations around the world. He has also served as a medical volunteer in countries within Africa and Honduras."
"Brian's leadership skills, collaborative spirit, and quest for clinical excellence combined with his passion for advancing home and specialty infusion therapy, makes him an ideal recipient to receive the first-ever pharmacy excellence award, Maksym concluded.
"I'm happy to be at my first conference," said Moe. "From the networking to the speakers, I'm excited to become part of the future of home infusion therapy."
A counterpart to the Lynn Giglione Memorial NHIF Scholarship, this award aims to strengthen and promote learning, leadership, and professional advancement among home and specialty infusion pharmacists. Founded by NHIA in 2012, the Foundation aims to advance the field of home and specialty infusion by sponsoring programs that promote leadership, education and research.
