2012 GRANT WINNERS
SOIM Grant Award announcements:
This year we had an excellent crop of applications for our two grant awards – one for an
education project and another for research. The choices were not easy because the competition was good. This year’s awardees are Dr. Sanghamitra Misra from the Baylor College of Medicine and Dr. Qing Yang from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Dr. Misra will be implementing “A Day of CAM/Integrative Medicine for pediatric residents” for Baylor residents that will include didactic and experiential components and an evaluation. Dr. Yang is studying the inclusion of omega-3 fatty acids in intralipid formulas for premature infants with ostomies requiring TPN. We are very excited to support the important work of both of these scholars. In our next newsletter we will be updating you on the accomplishments of past grant recipients as well.
Be sure to look for more opportunities in 2014!
