Hearst Foundations Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Grant Program
With the generous support of a $1.2 million grant from the Hearst Foundations Aging Initiative, AAHPM coordinates funding support for fellowship training programs over a three year period which began in 2012. In the two years, 18 individual grants were awarded to partially support physicians interested in caring for the aging, or older population, and becoming mentors, educators and role models.
