brown_michael_1090001510_220142   Due April 28th

Michael Brown worked for the Oklahoma State Department of health and served on the board of the  Rural Health Association of Oklahoma for most of RHAO’s existence.   When Michael lost his struggle with cancer, an appropriate memorial was sought.  His family felt recognizing Michael’s tireless support and advocacy of rural health providers and their issues would be well represented through a scholarship fund.  The scholarship would be used to help people attend the Oklahoma Rural Health Conference in which he always found great value.

The Michael Brown Memorial Scholarship exists to help rural health advocates attend the Oklahoma Rural Health Conference they would not have been able to attend due to budget issues.   The RHAO Board will select three applicants to receive a full registration to the 2016 Rural Health Conference, May 25-26th, at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Norman, OK.

To apply, submit an email two to three paragraphs in length on what attending the conference would mean to you and your agency and what budgetary constraints have kept you from registering thus far.  Deadline for submitting the emails to agseigars@nwosu.edu is Friday, April 28, 2017, at 5pm, CST.  Scholarships will be awarded Friday, May 6, 2016.  The Michael Brown Memorial Scholarship is open to all Oklahoman’s who have an interest in rural and underserved health issues.
