John and Valerie Rowe Health Professions Scholars Program

The John and Valerie Rowe Health Professions Scholars Program began with a generous gift from Drs. John and Valerie Rowe. The program was designed to provide opportunities (financial, academic, and experiential) to students from backgrounds underrepresented in the health fields. Through mentoring, educational enrichment, community service, and professional development, students will be poised to take their places as leaders in the health professions community.
