Healthpointe’s Medical Director Dr. Ismael Silva is proud to announce that Healthpointe is now accepting applications for three $1,000 academic scholarships to Southern California students interested in a medical career.
On the creation of the scholarship program, Dr. Ismael Silva said, “I remember when I was in high school, and a future career in medicine seemed at times like an out of reach dream. Hopefully, this scholarship will encourage young students to reach their goals, and nurture that initial spark.”
