“We are so honored to work with our Auxiliary each year on the scholarships for students entering healthcare-related fields,” Unity Health Foundation Executive Director, Cassandra Feltrop said. “They are committed to providing the funds for the scholarships and have a committee who evaluates the applications and selects the winners. Our hopes are that the scholarship recipients will return to work at Unity Health upon completion of their degrees.”
