The Medical Education Fund identifies and supports learning opportunities for health care providers across disciplines on community health-related issues. It was established by pooling two funds, the Peter H. Smith Fund and the Elizabeth McCall Fund. In 2012, attendees learned how interactions between health care providers and patients are affected by age-related changes in a patient’s communication.
