On April 21, 2018, Larkin University College of Pharmacy faculty member Dr. Melissa Santibanez presented a lecture entitled “Updates in the management of resistant alcohol withdrawal” as part of the day-long inaugural annual symposium for the Florida chapter of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). The conference was hosted by the University of South Florida Health in Tampa, Florida. It represented the first large-scale meeting of the Florida chapter’s members. The Florida chapter of the SCCM is a newly chartered chapter that has only been in operation since May 2017; although it began in the West Florida/Tampa area, its’ reach and membership expands into North and South Florida. Dr. Santibanez’s lecture provided a 1-hour continuing education (CE) credit for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists and was the only CE lecture given by a South Florida member. Individuals interested in the management of resistant alcohol withdrawal or involvement within the Florida chapter of SCCM or SCCM itself should contact Dr. Santibanez directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
