Recap: First-Ever Event a Big Success!

The School of Health Professions held its first-ever “Making Health Care Heroes” golf tournament at St. Andrew’s Golf Club on August 18, 2023. We had 18 four-person teams of golfers competing for prizes, and held a fun raffle drawing during the lunch reception following.

More than $40,000 in net proceeds were raised from our inaugural event. These funds will allow us to greatly expand our financial support to students, helping them become successful future leaders of health care.

The School of Health Professions is extremely grateful to each of our sponsors, participants, volunteers and supporters for such an outstanding effort.
