An anonymous donor is thanking the excellent care they received in hospital by setting up a new annual scholarship.
Red Deer Regional Health Foundation will present the scholarship in the amount of $1,000 or more to a Central Albertan who is enrolled in a licensed practical nursing, health-care aide or unit clerk program.
The foundation gives out scholarships for various health-care educational pursuits, including pediatrics, hospice and more. In 2012, more than $21,000 in scholarships were given out in 12 categories.
If anyone is interested in creating a health-care scholarship that will benefit students and all future users of Central Alberta’s health-care system, call the foundation at 403-343-4773.
Information on all scholarships is found on the website at www.rdrhfoundation.com.
Applications are accepted between Aug. 1 and Sept. 15. Students must live or have a permanent address within 100 km of Red Deer.
Red Deer Regional Health Foundation has been enhancing health-care excellence in Central Alberta since 1993 by raising dollars to provide state-of-the-art medical equipment and services.
