LOHF Announces 2017 Nurse Education Scholarship Recipients

The Lancaster Osteopathic Health Foundation (LOHF) is proud to announce the recipients of the 2017 Nurse Education Scholarship. The purpose of the Nurse Education Scholarship Program is to strengthen the capacity of healthcare professionals in Lancaster County by supporting nursing students.

This year, LOHF invested $63,000 in the education of 22 local nursing students; this includes 19 new scholarship recipients and 3 previous recipients who are continuing in a second or third year of their degree program.

“We are thrilled to be able to assist healthcare providers with critical access to financial and educational resources including grants, scholarships, information and training. Our Nurse Education Scholarship supports students at leading medical facilities, universities and colleges in Lancaster County and the surrounding region,” explains Anna Brendle Kennedy, LOHF Executive Director.
