I greatly enjoyed participating in the International Palliative Care Network Poster Exhibition. It was an excellent platform to share updates on palliative care research being conducted and is a cost-effective way to gain an international perspective on issues we are all working as a community to address. It is always an honor to be recognized for your work and I’m extremely to the Palliative Care Network, my co-investigators, and my mentor Dr. Mary Lynn McPherson who encouraged me to participate in the exhibition.
