Congratulations, Mary Gentry! Maria is one of thirteen awardees of the health-focused scholarships from the Greater Lee's Summit Healthcare Foundation in 2019. Her award was for $5,000.
Maria says, "I am a third-year medical student at the University of Missouri-Columbia interested in emergency medicine. I am excited by the prospect of helping people in their most vulnerable states, when they truly cannot help themselves. I am also interested in educating future physicians, as I know the difference that a good faculty member/teacher can make on a student. Earning this scholarship helps make it possible for me to follow my dream of education and practice without having additional stress of overwhelming student loans. Thank you so much to the GLSHF for this honor!"
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.
