Silvia Arabia Receives United Health Foundation Diverse Scholars Initiative Award

We are pleased to announce that one of our MEPN 2018–2019 students, Silvia Arabia, was recognized with a United Health Foundation Diverse Scholars Initiative award at the recent National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) annual meeting in Cleveland, Ohio.

The United Health Foundation Diverse Scholars Initiative works to increase the number of primary care health providers ready to meet health care needs now and in the future by creating a more culturally relevant health workforce and a more effective health care system, particularly in underserved communities. NAHN values its partnership with the United Health Foundation, which provides a $5,000 per year scholarship for three consecutive years.

Silvia will enter the Nurse Midwifery program after her MEPN year.
