The 2014 Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship Program

Date: August 11, 2014
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Location: The New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, New York, NY 10029

Please join us for brief final presentations and a reception honoring the second cohort of Margaret E. Mahoney Fellows at NYAM on August 11, 2014 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

The Mahoney Fellows are health professions students from a variety of disciplines who have spent the summer conducting research projects on health care delivery transformation with an emphasis on health policy. The program was initiated with generous support from the Commonwealth Fund, The Carnegie Corporation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Carol and David Richards, and others. We invite you to engage with the Fellows about the policy implications of their research and to celebrate the end of the program.
