Walter Reed Society Health Information Management Scholarships

Better Health Information = Better Health.

The Walter Reed Society (WRS) is strengthening this concept by providing funding for Health Information Management (HIM) scholarships to the spouses of active duty military, veterans and their spouses, wounded warriors and their spouses and surviving spouses.  Since 2015, the WRS has funded seven scholarships for those at the associate, bachelor’s and master’s level. In 2019, there were five applications for the HIM scholarships and one awarded. The scholarship recipient is a Navy spouse enrolled in an Associate Degree Program at Tidewater Community College in VA which will allow her to sit for the examination to be credentialed as a Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT).  She stated that she: “sincerely thanks the WRS and donors for their generosity effort and encouragement. The opportunity inspires personal growth and professional success” The WRS desires to have more applicants for these scholarships. Request that the readers educate prospective eligible applicants on the Health Information Management career field: (http://www.ahima.org/careers/healthinfo?tabid=why ) and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Foundation Veteran Scholarships: (http://www.ahimafoundation.org/education/VeteransScholarship.aspx)
