BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Boca Raton Regional) — Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation again partnered with the George Snow Scholarship Fund to provide free college physicals and immunizations for 2015 scholarship recipients. Snow Scholars were administered complete college physicals by Boca Raton Regional Hospital Emergency Department physician Evan Goldstein, MD. Meningitis vaccines were underwritten by the Hospital Foundation.
This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the George Snow Scholarship Fund, a Boca Raton-based 501(c) 3 Public Charity, which provides college scholarships to deserving students in Palm Beach and Northern Broward Counties. The four-year scholarships are designed to bridge the gap between financial aid granted by colleges, state and federal aid programs and the recipient’s own resources. Boca Raton Regional Hospital partnered with the George Snow Scholarship Fund 10 years ago and has been providing physicals and immunization services to scholarship recipients ever since.
“It’s a great cause and I’m proud to play a role in it,” said Dr. Goldstein. “Easing the costs associated with going to college for these deserving students is extremely gratifying both professionally and personally.”
“We are so grateful to Dr. Goldstein and the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation for the valuable service they provide to our scholars,” commented Tim Snow, President of the Scholarship Fund. “We feel very fortunate to have them included in our family of supporters. For our scholars, it saves them a great deal of money and allows them to get immunizations they might not otherwise be able to receive.”
