CAPhO's 20th Anniversary Celebration at CAPhO16

This year's CAPhO Conference coincided with CAPhO's 20th anniversary and of course this called for a celebration with cake and cake pops.
CAPhO began as a small organized group of Oncology pharmacists in 1986, when Rosemary Bacovsky and Mary Gannon invited 20 of their colleagues to a meeting in Toronto. 
Two years later, in 1988, Rosemary and Larry Broadfield organized the first National Oncology Pharmacy Symposium (NOPS).
The CAPhO Founding meeting was part of NOPS in 1995 and over that year the work of bringing CAPhO to life was completed.
The first Annual General Meeting was held at NOPS in 1996.
Today CAPhO is a well respected national association with over 300 members, ranging from students to senior practitioners. We are therefore proud to celebrate 20 years of CAPhO and we hope there are many more years to come!
