How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

In this congress I was able to acquire and renew knowledge, collaborate with colleagues from different countries and strengthen social networks.

How will you new knowledge & acquired skills help in furthering your work in hospice and palliative care in your program/city/ or country?

I take this opportunity to tell you that I have joined the education commission of the Latin American Association of Palliative Care. I am sure that my work there will allow important growth and greater visibility for my team, Palliative Care of the Fundación Valle del Lili.

How IAHPC Traveling Scholars Program be improved in order to help other future traveling scholars?

I think that this type of traveling scholarship can help more people to improve their skills and knowledge.
