Throughout the year, the Society for Participatory Medicine (SPM) provides scholarships to patients who need financial assistance to help with their travel-related expenses when traveling to speak at conferences. These conferences are important, as they help e-patients share their participatory medicine story directly with relevant audiences. Without financial assistance, many patients are not able to afford to attend these conferences. (The Society also works with a number of conferences to have conference fees waived for e-patients.)
The travel fund was started by e-Patient Regina Holliday.
Interested in a travel scholarship for the inaugural SPM conference on Oct. 25?
