Dr M R Rajagopal was named one of the 30 most influential leaders in hospice and palliative medicine by American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
In celebration of 30 years serving the profession, the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) asked its 5,000 members to nominate whom they think are the leaders – or Visionaries – in the field. They then asked members to vote for the top 10 among the 142 nominated.
Dr Rajagopal is one of 30 physicians, nurses and researchers recognized by peers for the important role he or she played in advancing the medical specialty of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
“This program recognizes key individuals who have been critical in building and shaping our field over the past 30 years,” noted Steve R. Smith, AAHPM CEO. “These individuals represent thousands of other healthcare professionals in this country who provide quality medical care and support for those living with serious illness — each and every day.”
