In addition to networking with other participants while attending the program’s scheduled sessions, scholarship awardees will be matched with a NASPGHAN fellow and/or attending physician (often themselves a Teaching and Tomorrow Program alumnus) who will serve as an additional professional contact and NASPGHAN ambassador.
