As a scholarship recipient, Dr. Boffa will be appointed to serve a 3-year term on the STS/AATS Workforce on Health Policy, Reform, and Advocacy, starting in January 2019.
Applications for the 2019 scholarship will be accepted later this year. Applicants must be members of both STS and ACS and between the ages of 30 and 55. Application materials, which include a curriculum vitae and a one-page essay discussing why the candidate wishes to receive the scholarship, are due by February 1, 2019. The scholarship will help cover the costs of tuition, travel, and accommodations during the course.
