APPD Forum for Fellowship Directors at PAS – Cancelled

May 1, 2020
Pennsylvania Convention Center
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Letter from the Fellowship Directors’ Executive Committee:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As you may have heard, the PAS 2020 Meeting has been cancelled. Therefore APPD will not be
sponsoring the Forum for Fellowship Directors at PAS. We know that group gatherings pose a risk for our individuals, our families, and our overburdened healthcare system. Please know that we are all looking forward to reconvening in the future and sharing time and ideas together.

Currently, the Fellowship Directors’ Executive Committee is considering some other ways to share updates via the digital space. Right now, it is more important to support one another and our colleagues at work, be leaders for calm and definitive action (and strategic inaction e.g. social distancing) in our communities, and to be prepared for the physical and mental trials in the weeks to come.

We are so very proud of the outstanding members of the fellowship and vice chair community and know that in this time of challenge and struggle you are busy using your skills, your talents, and your adaptability to give your best. Be well.

Today in health care, as perhaps never before, we are truly one team with a singular goal- to
mitigate the damage of this pandemic. One Team, One Goal, One Fight.

The APPD Fellowship Directors’ Executive Committee is available for any questions. We encourage members to use the APPD Fellowship Directors’ or Vice Chairs of Education/”Super” Fellowship Directors Discussion Board on the APPD website.

Sincerely,
The Fellowship Directors’ Executive Committee of APPD

Katherine Mason, MD, Chair
Jennifer Kesselheim, MD, Chair-Elect
Kathleen McGann, MD, Immediate Past Chair
Christine Barron, MD
