Community & Preventive Medicine Scholarship
Sponsored by the Osteopathic Founders Foundation
The Osteopathic philosophy encourages the treatment of our patients through a whole body experience, taking account for matters of the mind, body and spirit. Osteopathic physicians bring this idea into their practice of community and preventive medicine where the philosophy thrives and allows a better quality of life for their patients. The Osteopathic Founders Foundation looks to acknowledge students who have a passion for working in community health and look to advance within Preventive Medicine with this $1,000.00 award.
Fall 2021 Recipient
"Thank you for your generous donation to help support students like me in becoming compassionate osteopathic physicians! I am honored to have received the Community & Preventive Medicine Scholarship. I am currently applying for residency in orthopaedic surgery where I hope to one day practice in rural and community settings. I am also interested in pursuing a pediatric orthopedic fellowship and traveling to areas without major children’s hospitals to help increase access to care."
