Trainee Poster Award Winners



It is my pleasure to be able to share with you all the results of the Trainee Poster Awards. I, along with my fellow judges, had the pleasure of reviewing student posters, meeting trainees, and were truly thoroughly impressed not only with the high quality of research and program development which is being done, the innovative approaches these trainees are bringing to their work, but also the enthusiasm and pride which was so evident in all of the submissions. It was inspiring and a joy, and in case anyone was worried, you needn't be. The future of Palliative Care research rests in very capable hands.
