2011-08-05 - ALFP Training for David

David completed the first session of leadership training as part of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Academic Leadership Fellows Program (ALFP).  This first phase was a week-long retreat at the Airlie Center in rural Virginia.  This retreat was focused on teaching the attendees how to identify their leadership strengths and weaknesses and how to adapt to their weaknesses.  Frankly, at times it felt a little bit like psychoanalysis - you know it is good for you, but it still makes you feel uncomfortable.  The second session of the program will be held this fall in Washington, D.C.
