scholarship awarded by mkccr

The first Mezin-Koats Scholarship was awarded at the Medical School Scholarship Reception at University of Minnesota in September 2016. First-year medical student, Phillip Titecombe, was awarded the scholarship. Phillip is passionate about medicine and patient care and plans to focus on research and work directly with patients. We think he's going to make a wonderful doctor! Every year, a University of Minnesota medical student will be awarded this scholarship to assist with education expenses.

It features patients, doctors, caregivers and researchers – vividly bringing the message of why donations matter to life.
