Ruth Fox Scholarship Recipients

  • ASAM strives to increase the opportunities for residents to learn about the diagnosis and treatment of substance use disorders. To do so, the Ruth Fox Memorial Endowment Fund will fund a limited number of scholarships for selected physicians-in-training to participate in the Society’s annual conference. Recipients receive a complimentary three-year membership.
