Congratulations to our Palliative Care Program for receiving an award at the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) in Boston, on March 17, 2018. Under Dr. Suresh Reddy’s leadership, Indo-American Cancer Association (IACA) along with Pallium India took it on themselves to support educational initiatives in palliative care in India. They worked on the curriculum, strengthened the evaluation, and raised funds to support scholarships for palliative care champions from all over the country to participate in educational programs in India.
Congratulations, Dr. Suresh Reddy and team!
One of IACA’s many initiatives is to aid cancer patients who are terminally ill. Every year, thousands of cancer patients will die agonizing deaths with no pain relief, symptomatic care, or support. IACA has committed to making pain and palliative care of cancer patients a key focus of its activities in India.
