“We hope this gift in the short term will alleviate the financial burden and allow the students to focus on learning,” Mead said. “In the long term, we hope this scholarship will inspire students to give back to the Central Florida community and empower young physicians to make a difference in the lives of others.”

Dean Mead established the first endowed scholarship at the UCF College of Medicine in 2007.  Read the article here: Celebrating The Power of Giving.
