Oncology Nurses’ and Physician Assistants’ Conference Travel Awards
The Anita and Walter Lubov Fund provides funding for oncology nurses and physician assistants to attend educational conferences that will help them improve their care of women with ovarian cancer, increase their knowledge of the disease, and enable them to educate others about ovarian cancer.
This funding is made available through Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA) with generous support from the family of Anita Lubov, an oncology nurse in Ohio who died from ovarian cancer in 1999. Her daughter, Jan Arnold, explained that her mother “saw value in education, and to honor her memory in this way is most fitting.”
Oncology nurses and physician assistants currently practicing in Minnesota can apply for support to attend conferences that will help them:
- Improve their care of women with ovarian cancer
- Increase their knowledge of ovarian cancer
- Enable them to educate others about ovarian cancer
The funding can be used to support travel, conference fees, lodging and per diem. It is not meant to supplant funding available from employers or other sources. Multiple scholarships can be awarded each year.
Check back in the late summer of 2019 for details on the application period.
