Special Interest Groups' Quarterly Calls
As part of a generous grant from the John A. Hartford Foundation to support ASP's "Integrating Geriatrics into the Specialties of Internal Medicine: Moving Forward from Awareness to Action" project, ASP holds quarterly conference calls with members of geriatric special interest groups within 11 specialties of internal medicine.
To date ASP has held three conference calls featuring individuals who have had success in developing education initiatives emphasing geriatric components of medical education. If you would like to be included in future quarterly conference calls or have questions about the Integrating Geriatrics project, please contact ASP Grants Assistant Catherine M. Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
