This Holiday - Support the ASBMR Phoebe Leboy Professional Development Award
Date: December 19, 2012
Endocrinologist Dr. Telma Palomo de Oliveira received the inaugural ASBMR Phoebe Leboy Professional Development Award during the ASBMR Annual Meeting. The new award provides a female young investigator who resides outside the United States with resources needed to attend the ASBMR Annual Meeting, mentorship from senior women in the field, and complimentary membership in the Society.
The award is named in honor of the legacy and contributions of Dr. Phoebe Leboy, a longstanding ASBMR member who dedicated her life to the mentoring of future generations of scientific investigators. To continue to fund this successful program that helps young investigators continue to grow the bone field, we need your financial support. Find out more about the award and donate today. Complete the donation form and note in the section, “in honor of” The Leboy Award.
De Oliveira, whose research focuses on osteogenesis imperfecta and other bone diseases, “was blissfully happy” to receive it, noting that she “would never have imagined that it would be so invaluable in terms of networking contacts, mentors’ guidance and future connections for my career.”
