In the spotlight

Kevin Wong ’21: Kinesiology, Ruth M. White Scholarship Recipient

I plan to start my career as a health-care professional after graduation. The program that I plan to enroll in is called Intraoperative Neuromonitoring—a specialized training program that will allow me to gain experience in treating patients. This scholarship helped me commit to the program and I cannot appreciate it enough.
