A decade of Community Health Network Foundation awarding healthcare scholarships
Three local high-school seniors have each been awarded a $3,000 It’s Our Community scholarship, which will help them earn a college healthcare degree. This year’s recipients are:
- Amanda Basham of Whiteland Community High School, studying pharmacy at Purdue University
- Gabrielle Dunn of Bishop Chatard High School, studying to be a physician’s assistant at Butler University
- Courtney Tanner of Fishers High School, studying nursing at Ball State University
The It’s Our Community Health Care Scholarship Program began in 2004 as way to develop Indiana’s health and life science workforce by encouraging Indiana college students to earn a degree and seek long-term employment in Indiana. During the past nine years, more than $237,000 in It’s Our Community scholarships have been distributed to 79 students. Full story >>
Community is more than our name, it’s our mission
We share Community Health Network’s mission to make a difference in the central Indiana communities we serve. As one of the state’s largest health care networks, Community provides over $60 million in community benefit services each year. To those who may have difficulty accessing health care services, we have many outreach strategies. To those who may not be able to afford the cost of health care, we assist and provide resources. To those who may not be knowledgeable about their own health issues, we provide education.
Community Health Network Foundation financially supports numerous community benefit programs, projects and efforts—many of which have been nationally recognized—that help boost the health of the areas it serves. Our donor-based support allows for free health screenings, free health clinics through school-based programs, the rehabilitation of homes and neighborhoods, and the establishment of community health centers providing primary care in underserved communities. In addition, area high school seniors benefit from our It’s Our Community life sciences scholarship program.
We’re proud of our community involvement through our support of these service programs, scholarships and community partnerships that help us deliver on our mission.
Please make a gift to support our commitment to your community.
