Patient Travel Scholarships
Throughout the year, the Society for Participatory Medicine 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 and is managed with e-Patient Regina Holliday. Her founding of this initiative, and her continued coordination and support of this effort has been invaluable.
We Need Your Help!
Your help is needed in order to ensure our e-Patient Travel Fund has the resources necessary to help e-patients everywhere. To-date, we’ve sent over a dozen patients to speak at conferences around the country. You can help us send dozens more by making a donation to the travel fund today!
