AOSW Fellows

History 
At the 2017 AOSW Annual Conference, the AOSW Board of Directors decided to explore establishing a Fellow status for the Association. The Awards Committee developed and agreed on a proposal, which was presented to the Board in October 2017, recommending creation of this honorary status, and suggesting eligibility criteria and selection procedures.
 
Purpose
The purpose of AOSW Fellowship is to recognize and honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the science and practice of psychosocial oncology. Membership in the Fellowship is not purely honorific, however: it carries an expectation of ongoing contributions to and leadership within the AOSW. 
 
The inaugural cohort of 2018 AOSW Fellows is comprised of past presidents of AOSW.  View bios > > >
