Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope Hospice and Palliative Care, has been awarded a Fellow credential in Pain Management by the American Academy of Pain Management.

The American Academy of Pain Management is the largest multidisciplinary society of pain management professionals. Credentialing by the Academy requires successful passage of an examination, specific experience in pain management, adherence to the Patient Bill of Rights and Code of Ethics as well as other stringent criteria.

“At Hope Hospice, our highest priority is to provide comfort to our patients,” Beckwith said. “Expertise in pain management is a benefit to those we serve every day. I’m honored to reach this academic level and will continue to work for even greater improvements in patient care.”
