Feigin UptoDate Scholarship

In August, 2008, UpToDate, in conjunction with Texas Children’s Hospital, established a series of pediatric subscription awards in honor of Dr. Ralph David Feigin, who was editor-in-chief of the Pediatrics Section of UpToDate since its inception in 1999.

The deadline for applications is May 30. Awardees are announced in June and subscriptions start in July.
