Presented by Dr. Diane Meier for the medical, science and academic community.

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 2013, attendees learned how palliative care is important to improving value in healthcare and ways in which the healthcare delivery system can improve access to quality palliative care in and outside the hospital.
