Dr Sunil Kumar of Pallium India at AAHPM annual assembly, Orlando, USA
Dr. Sunil Kumar from Pallium India gave an engaging talk at the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine on March 14, 2019. Dr. Sunil was visiting after being awarded a competitive international scholar fellowship through AAHPM.
He spoke about the burgeoning field of Indian palliative care and the challenges his country has faced in this arena. He described the inspiring work of his colleagues in Pallium India and the overall structure of their program. During the Q and A session, he fielded questions about Pallium’s innovative volunteer program and their inpatient unit’s experience with ketamine (a novel drug in America that is only recently gaining traction in the U.S.). Dr Sunil did a wonderful job representing his organization and his country.
