American Osteopathic Foundation to award five from OSU-COM at Honors 2013
The American Osteopathic Foundation will recognize five medical students and the wife of a recent graduate from OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine during the organization’s “Honors” celebration in Las Vegas on Sept. 29.
Second-year medical students Anna Morgan and Rachael Pattison as well as Tiffany Palmer, MS-III, and Krystal Bell, MS-I, will each receive a Rossnick Humanitarian Grant. The grant provides funding to physicians and students who travel to underserved, underdeveloped or disaster-stricken areas to provide medical services.
Andrew J. Hale, MS-III, will receive a Welch Scholars Grant. The grant is awarded to one student from each college of osteopathic medicine to help defray costs during a student’s medical education. Recipients are chosen because of their outstanding academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, strong commitment toward osteopathic medicine and financial need.
Amanda A. Lee, spouse of Brian Lee, D.O., was selected as a recipient of the Donna Jones Moritsugu Memorial Award. The award is given to the spouse of a graduating student for their support during medical school. Lee was also recognized during the OSU-CHS annual awards banquet on May 16.
