Scoliosis Research Society Announces
the 2016 Traveling Fellowship Award Winners
Milwaukee, WI (June 21, 2016) – Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) would like congratulate the 2016 Traveling Fellows, Brice Ilharreborde, MD, PhD of France; Bangping Qian, MD of China; Kota Watanabe, MD, PhD of Japan; and Senior Fellow Keith DK Luk, MD of China, as they embark on their three week visit to spinal deformity centers throughout the US and Canada.
The SRS Traveling Fellowship is an award that sponsors three SRS fellows to visit spinal deformity centers in the different regions. The award alternates between North American fellows (US, Canada, and Mexico) which visit centers in Europe/Asia and international fellows which visit deformity centers in North America. Both trips last three-to-four weeks and end at the SRS Annual Meeting & Course or IMAST if possible. Free meeting registration is included in the award.
