Congratulations, Jason Egberuare! Jason is one of thirteen awardees of the health-focused scholarships from the Greater Lee's Summit Healthcare Foundation in 2019. His award was for $5,000.
Jason says, "My professional aspiration is to develop into a physician and individual versatile in the ways that I can positively impact my patients and community. I am currently undecided about which medical specialty to pursue, but I am confident UMKC’s six-year BA/MD program is preparing me towards that decision. The financial contribution provided by the Greater Lee’s Summit Healthcare Foundation is a tremendous help in this process. I have used it to alleviate part of my summer 2019 tuition costs. Thank you very much to the GLSHF scholarship committee for believing my efforts worthy of its support."
Since 2003, GLSHF has granted more than $1.4 million in scholarships or grants to a multitude of awardees designed to impact the health and well-being of the greater Lee’s Summit community.
