During the month of August many readers were on vacation, including us. If you were too, we hope you enjoyed the rest. We did!
Next month is IAHPC members’ recognition month. IAHPC benefits every day by the hard work of our members who are devoted to the advancement of hospice and palliative care worldwide. Members exemplify a continuing commitment to patient care, improving education and developing favorable policies consistent with our mission.
To celebrate our members’ month, IAHPC will be giving two prizes (a Traveling Scholarship or Traveling Fellowship of up to $2,000). Prizes will be given in two categories: a) Recognizing member loyalty and b) Increasing our membership. This edition includes a copy of the announcement.
