Time and time again, our students tell us they were inspired to pursue a career in health care because of a personal experience that touched them deeply.Someone helped them – or someone they care about – and made a difficult medical situation so much better.
To pursue their dreams, our students juggle jobs and families with demanding classes and clinical placements, doing whatever it takes to succeed. Many attend classes part-time, borrow the money they need for tuition, and simply do without, all so they can become health care professionals.
More than half of our students are the first in their families to attend college. They have the drive to succeed and the compassion to care. What they lack are the resources to attain their goal of a career in which they show up, every day, to help people where and when they need it most.
Maybe you made sacrifices so you could attend college and you remember just how difficult it was. Or, maybe you've experienced the kind words and reassuring touch of a health care professional in a time of need. Or, perhaps you're grateful that our community is made all the stronger by the excellent health care available to us all.
Whatever the reason, you can be someone's hero today by making your gift to the PA College Annual Fund.
