May 2016

ISOPP’s very own Secretary, John Wiernikowski, was recognized with several awards at CAPhO Conference 2016, which took place on April 14-17 in Niagara Falls, Canada.

John was awarded with the 2016 Larry Broadfield Distinguished Service Award and received the Fellowship of the Canadian Association of Pharmacy in Oncology (FCAPhO) designation.

John was also the winner of the CAPhO tweeter from a distance contest.

Congratulations John!


In 2016 ISOPP turned 20 and if you thought we wouldn’t take full advantage of the opportunity to celebrate, you thought wrong. The big party happened at ISOPP 2016 in Chile (of which more in a moment), but we’re also celebrating our anniversary throughout the year. We want as many people as possible to know about the exceptional work ISOPP has done in the past two decades to promote and enhance the practice of oncology pharmacy as well as our exciting plans for the future.
