Academic Advantage 2019 was a hit!
We held our Academic Advantage event on Saturday, April 13, at the Kirkwood Hotel in Cedar Rapids, and we’re thrilled to tell you that it was a hit! It was wonderful for us to witness our driven local students getting a much-deserved head start on the path to their dream careers in health care. Attendees were given the opportunity to participate in a raffle and a giveaway of prizes as they gained incredibly valuable wisdom from our knowledgeable panel of speakers. Advice on how to gain admission to and be successful while attending medical school was offered and many student questions were answered.
We would like to thank all the students, parents, and volunteers who made this event so successful. Academic Advantage events are designed for students who are between 6th and 12th grade, or anyone in the community interested in learning more about pursuing careers in the medical or dental field.
Academic Advantage Scholarship News
As promised, we awarded one $500 scholarship and one $1000 scholarship at the event to two students who demonstrated in their essays that they are actively dedicated to accomplishing their educational goals in health care. The team at Dental Implant & Oral Surgery Specialists of Iowa is proud to assist rising stars like these in the pursuit of their academic dreams. We look forward to hearing their updates!
Stay tuned for details about our next Academic Advantage event! You could be our next scholarship recipient!
