Keep Changing the Face of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Since 2010, the Life Members Fund has made an investment in 78 medical students and 92 residents through its two grant awards, Education Outreach for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residents and Mentorship Grants for Medical Students. 140 lives you impacted, who are and will become the next generation of child and adolescent psychiatrists.

For 2016, the Life Members Committee approved 40 new investments—13 medical students and 17 residents—who will attend the San Antonio meeting because of you!

The achievement to date is remarkable. But we must continue to work together to keep this number growing. We're at a time of great healthcare change and we must continue to help solve the problems of the future while remembering lessons of the past.
