With COVID-19 looming, NHHF scholarships are awarded to outstanding students who demonstrated academic excellence, leadership and a commitment to providing healthcare to Latinos.
The National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF), 501c foundation of the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA), will host its 17th annual ceremony—virtually—to present scholarships to outstanding Latino health professional students to assist them to become a dental professional, doctor, nurse, pharmacist, PA or public health administrator. The gala ceremony will be held Thursday, November 19, 2020.
“We are also honoring leaders who are role models for these remarkable students,” said Elena Rios, MD, MSPH, FACP, president and chief executive officer of NHHF and NHMA. “Additionally, we are partnering with visionary sponsors so that we are able to build the future health workforce for our communities, so ravaged by COVID-19.”
This year NHHF honors leaders in the health industry for their transformation of their community, academic, and private sector organizations so that more Latinos will have access to healthcare.
This year’s NHHF health professional student scholarships are being awarded to outstanding students who demonstrated academic excellence, leadership, and a commitment to providing healthcare to Latinos. Since the scholarship program was launched in 2004, NHHF has awarded over 280 scholarships, as the only Latino scholarship given to graduate students in healthcare in the United States.
