In 2016 the Foundation Board of Directors voted to create a Development Committee in order to raise sufficient funds to provide financial resources for the programs and services that AMDA-The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine and its affiliates have identified, including fellowships and grants. The Development Committee is critical to the success of our efforts to help serve the needs of the Society and to be more robust in its programming.
