Program Focus: Scholarship Funds

Access to healthcare depends on a pipeline of physicians to serve our community. This is key to our healthcare future.  Fore Health proceeds will fund scholarship programs and other resources that support local high school graduates who are pursuing osteopathic medical education, and encourage resident physicians to remain in our community to practice.  Some scholarships honor the legacies of physicians who have been instrumental in caring for our community and training new physicians.
