Dr Kathryn Denson has been named a diplomat in Palliative Medicine

Word has been received from the American Board of Medical Specialties that Dr Kathryn Denson has been named a diplomat in Palliative Medicine. She now joins Dr Cohan as division members with this distinction. This certification is essential for the Division to continue its partnership with Horizon Home Care and Hospice. I know that these Board certifications are onerous, time consuming and expensive. I appreciate all of your efforts to obtain and maintain these certifications.

Please join in congratulating Dr. K Denson on receiving this honor.
