Support the global pediatric educator scholarship
Help us provide a scholarship opportunity for pediatric educators in low and middle income countries!
As members of the APPD Global Health Learning Community we are privileged to meet pediatric educators from around the globe who seek to improve child health by advancing pediatric education in their countries. We know that continued efforts to improve global child health in part depend on the development of a high quality pediatric workforce through quality training programs. We are also aware of the resources we enjoy through APPD, a community that encourages us to improve our teaching and education research, and provides us with like-minded colleagues, mentors, and career development opportunities.
Thanks to dozens of generous donors, for APPD Spring meetings in the past 3 years we recognized two pediatric educators each year hailing from Laos, Ghana, Ethiopia, Bhutan, Mozambique and Malawi.
Hosting them at the meeting and hearing about their work was inspiring!
We are now raising funds to bring additional pediatric educators to next year’s Spring Meeting.
Estimated costs are $3700 per awardee. To donate online go to:
Donations are tax deductible. Call for nominees will go out this fall.
