Research and Scholarship Travel

Akron Children's Hospital Department of Pediatrics encourages and supports investigator-initiated research by subspecialty fellows.

Although the policy relates to presentation at a national forum, requests for support for presentation at a regional forum are considered on a case-by-case basis.
