NINE MINORITY MEDICAL STUDENTS RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS
Now in its 13th year, the TMA the Minority Scholarship Program has awarded 74 scholarships totaling $370,000 since 1999. That includes the nine most recent winners, announced at TexMed 2012. The scholarship encourages minority students to enter medicine by lightening the financial burden of medical school. As proud as we are of the winners, I want to use this space to thank the individuals and organizations who underwrote this year’s scholarships: Wendell Daniels, MD, of Longview; Betty and Mark Kubala, MD, of Beaumont; Alan and Sarah Losinger of Dallas; Cecilia and Tim Norwood, MD, of Dallas; Susan M. Pike, MD, and Harry T. Papaconstantinou, MD, of Georgetown; Irvin Robinson, MD, of Fort Worth; Charli and Jim Rohack, MD, of Bryan; Dana and Jamie Ronderos, MD, of Frisco; Cathy Scholl, MD, of Austin; the Bell, Dallas, El Paso, Hidalgo-Starr, McLennan, Midland, Nueces, Tarrant, and Travis county medical societies; Harris County Medical Society/Houston Academy of Medicine; Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas; H-E-B; and the Khushalani Foundation of Humble. Thank you all very much.
