Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation (PHNCF), the fundraising arm for Primary Health Network, has announced their 2020 Scholarship Award Recipients. For the 15th consecutive year, PHNCF has provided over $30,000 to those students pursuing a career in the healthcare field. Recipients were selected based on outstanding academic achievement and community involvement.
PHNCF’s Scholarship Program works to ensure that there will always be well-trained doctors, nurses, technicians and other health care professionals to provide the highest quality of care throughout Primary Health Network’s service areas. PHNCF has a long-standing commitment to public service by breaking down barriers most communities face when accessing quality healthcare. They do this by providing free transportation to Primary Health Network patients residing in certain counties, mentorship programs for community youth, and prescription assistance to qualifying Primary Health Network patients.
Cheryl Goldstone, Director of PHNCF Programs stated, “We had a large number of exceptional applicants this year. The process of then narrowing a large application pool is extremely difficult. Thankfully our Foundation has a scholarship committee comprised of both Primary Health Network employees and community leaders to assist in the selection process.” Applicants who made it to the second round of grading, were then interviewed by committee members. Goldstone continued, “On behalf of PHNCF, PHNCF and PHN Board of Directors and our Scholarship Committee, we would like to congratulate those 2020 recipients. We wish them continued success in their educational journeys and all future endeavors.”
