CAPC Announces the New York City Front-Runners for the John A. Hartford Tipping Point Challenge

September 15, 2023

New York, NY (September 18, 2023)—The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) is excited to announce twenty front-runners in the New York City Tipping Point Challenge. This clinical training competition was established to catalyze the spread of skills and improve health care delivery for all people living with a serious illness.

Due to generous additional funding from The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, the front-runners are currently competing with other New York City-based CAPC member organizations to achieve the greatest number of CAPC course completions within the timeframe of the competition, and/or since becoming a member organization. New York City-based member organizations are competing on both the local level and the national.

Until the end of October, there is time for other organizations to catch up to the front-runners. Winners will be announced in February 2024.

“It’s been wonderful to witness the healthy competition amongst New York City-based organizations for the third round of The John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge. Clinicians in New York City—across specialties and disciplines—are enhancing their skills in communication, pain management, symptom management, and more. We are thankful for the support of our partners, The John A. Hartford Foundation and The Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, to help improve quality of life for patients and their families in our hometown,” said CAPC CEO, Brynn Bowman, MPA.

“We are gratified to see so many clinicians across New York City participating in the Tipping Point Challenge,” said Lauren Green Weisenfeld, deputy director of the Healthy Aging Program, The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation. “With the growing need for clinicians to be trained in core palliative care skills, more and more clinicians across the city can integrate these skills into their daily practice, and improve patient and family care.”
