ProSites Announces Winner of Pay It Forward Dental Student Scholarship
The award was given to Kelly Nguyen, a student at Pacific Dugoni School of Dentistry. Kelly is a fourth-year student who has volunteered in California and Honduras, working with various under-privileged communities to promote oral health education.
"The Pay It Forward Scholarship was created to thank dental students for their selfless dedication to their communities," stated Ken Robinson, CMO of ProSites, "We're thrilled to extend this award to such a deserving student as Kelly and wish her the absolute best in her future endeavors."
Having lost both her parents throughout childhood and adolescence, Kelly is solely responsible for the financial needs of her education as a dental student. Furthermore, Kelly was hospitalized for nearly a week after experiencing a lethal allergic reaction to antibiotics, adding financial hardship to her burden.
"Receiving this scholarship means that I can borrow less in order to achieve my goal of becoming a community dentist at a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). I am interested in understanding the ways to reduce the barriers of access to oral healthcare for different groups of individuals," Kelly stated, "I hope to learn how to implement successful oral health outreach programs that cater to a variety of affected populations who face barriers to access such as cultural/language barriers and educational barriers, geographical obstacles, and financial hurdles."
