H.A.D.A FUTURE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
The Hispanic American Doctors Association of SW Florida (HADA) has adopted education as one of their principle goals. As a result, the HADA Board of Directors has established a scholarship fund that will award $1,000 to two students per year of Hispanic descent who expresses interest in pursuing a career within the medical or dental field. This scholarship was created to promote diversity in medicine, encourage commitment to eliminating health care disparities and support future doctors, while helping to alleviate student debt. This scholarship award program is made possible by the personal donations from HADA Board Members and local sponsors, and is available through the Foundation for Lee County School. Our goal is to increase the amount of the scholarships to 5,000 each. You can help us reach our goal by donating to our fund and through Amazon Smile purchases.
