Colleen is among the recipients of the Fred Kastenbaum PreHealth Award.

  Over the past few years, she has shadowed several doctors from different specialties to get a firsthand look at the variety that the medical field offers. She will decide her specialty once in medical school.

The award is to be used for assistance with preparation for the required standardized exams associated with admittance to graduate health programs such as: MCAT, DAT,  OAT, GRE.   Recipients must have a clear indication of career goals and reasons for pursuing those goals, as well has having a record of academic performance that is competitive for admission to the indicated graduate program.
