Emily Franciskato Awarded GLSHF Scholarship
Congratulations, Emily Franciskato! Emily is one of fifteen awardees of the health-focused scholarships from the Greater Lee's Summit Healthcare Foundation in 2021. Her award was for $5,000.
Emily says, "I can make the most impact working in the prenatal setting with our high-risk pregnancies and the Fetal Center at Vanderbilt. This scholarship helps me pursue my dream of becoming a genetic counselor. After graduation next May, I hope to return to the Kansas City area to give back to the town that has raised me."
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.
