AAHPM Fellowship Grants Program Provides Professional Networking Opportunities
Designated fellows from the Hearst and Samuels grant programs gathered at the 2015 AAHPM & HPNA Annual Assembly to network with colleagues and learn from leaders in the field. Fellows attended The Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels Foundation and Hearst Foundations Fellowship Grant Awardees Breakfast and Panel Discussion where hospice and palliative medicine national leaders shared what they wish they had known early in their careers. Stacie Levine, MD FAAHPM, AAHPM Fellowship Grant Advisory Work Group chair, facilitated a lively discussion with panelists Janet H. Bull, MD HMDC FAAHPM, James F. Cleary, MD FACHPM, Daniel Fischberg, MD PhD FAAHPM, and Vicki A. Jackson, MD MPH FAAHPM, sharing wisdom to help the fellows navigate and advance through their hospice and palliative medicine careers.
Since 2010 AAHPM has fostered the Fellowship Grants Program by partnering with foundations interested in advancing and supporting growth of the field of hospice and palliative medicine. AAHPM thanks the Gentiva Hospice, Y.C. Ho/Helen and Michael Chiang, The Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels, and Hearst foundations for their generous support.
