The EPIC Scholarship will help send someone to the 3rd World Congress on Abdominal and Pelvic Pain. EPIC is short for 'Educational Possibilities in Collaboration'.
Attending conferences is one way that we connect with people doing good work, become exposed to the latest research, and have the opportunity to forge relationships that can turn into amazing collaborations and learning experiences. The EPIC Scholarship is actually the result of attending conferences, which led to some pretty awesome collaboration and we want to help other make connections too. Thank you to Lorimer Moseley, and Body in Mind, we are able to help fund someone to get to a conference they may not have otherwise been able to attend.
As clinicians, we were once frustrated by the lack of evidence available to use in the clinic. Little did we know that researchers and educators also share frustrations about getting what they know into the hands of clinicians. The best advice we've ever received is 'show up and be a part of the conversation'.
While that advice is simple and brilliant, it's not always easy. This scholarship is easy: You can use it to fill the gaps in your funding, whatever that may be.
