Correspondent Needed! - World Congress Leadership Summit on Hospice and Palliative Care

In a previous blog I asked about coverage of some of the other main palliative care meetings as a new role for Pallimed.  Hopefully many of you are already attending these meetings and if you are you are welcome to email me in advance and get your complimentary 'Pallimed Blogger Press Badge' in exchange for giving us a summary of what you learned while you were at the conference.  Until now the Pallimed Blogger Press Badge really didn't hold much value beyond getting you into all the swankiest clubs and a Pallimed/GeriPal Party if it was being held in your city.  (They only happen once per year!)

But now we are entering a new era...


In an arrangement with the World Congress, they have given us one complimentary pass for a Pallimed reader to attend this meeting June 22-24th in Chicago.  Once you attend then you can report back on Pallimed with a blog post about your experience.

To be considered please email me at christian@pallimed.org with the Subject 'Pallimed Contest'. For additional consideration about how excited you would be to take this opportunity, comments on Pallimed, Facebook Fan Page and Tweets containing @Pallimed will all be considered.  From all the applicants the winner and two alternates will be selected and posted on the Pallimed Facebook Fan Page and Twitter on Wednesday at noon, and posted to the blog at 10pm that evening (all times Central, because it is the best time.)  From all the entries a random number generator will be used to select the winner and the two alternates.

If you are selected and end up not being able to go, I have the right at some time in the future to call you silly names in private.

Fine Print
You must be able to travel to Chicago to attend the majority of the meeting.  No hotel or travel expenses will be reimbursed.  No monetary reimbursement will be disbursed.  No money was given to Pallimed or any of the editors, or contributors for this arrangement.  This contest is open to current and past contributors

If you are interested in having a Pallimed blogger at your conference, please email christian@pallimed.org for details.  Selection of conference is at the discretion of the editors.
