Cure HHT Travel Awards

Young Scholar Travel Award Recipients

Cure HHT is excited to announce that we were able to grant nineteen (19) Travel Awards for six (6) abstract oral presenters and thirteen (13) abstract poster presenters to attend the 12th HHT International Scientific Conference due to the generosity of one donor family and three corporate sponsors. Award recipients were selected based upon their abstract score; each awardee will receive $750.00 (US) upon arrival at the conference to apply toward their travel and hotel costs.
