The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) and Garnett-Powers and Associates, Inc. have joined together to offer a health insurance plan to full, individual NPA members who do not have access to health insurance. Benefit coverage for the new plan is provided through StudentResources, a UnitedHealthcare company specializing in university health programs.
Stacy L. Gelhaus, Ph.D., Chair of the NPA Board of Directors, said, "The NPA Board is very pleased to be able to offer this plan, which meets a very real need within the postdoctoral community. We could not have offered this benefit without the assistance of Garnett-Powers, and we want to express our appreciation to them for their work on our behalf."
