Dr. Lynch receives David Calkins Memorial Scholarship

January 3, 2014
Brandon Lynch, a Preventive Medicine resident at Oregon Health and Science University and public health student at Portland State University, is the winner of this year’s David Calkins Memorial Scholarship, earning him a free trip to the National Forum. The scholarship, which is awarded to one full-time health professions student every year, includes a free registration to the Forum and $1,000 for travel and lodging. 

A panel of judges, including Susan Rice, David Calkins’ widow, and their son, Chris, chose Lynch’s winning essay – about improving his hospital’s Hepatitis B vaccine birth dose rate – from dozens of excellent candidates.
