The Second Annual American River HealthPro Credit Union golf tournament, held at Turkey Creek Golf Course on Oct. 17, raised more than $20,000 for student scholarships. Over 75 local doctors, politicians, UC Davis medical students and community supporters enjoyed a great day on the golf course.
As a credit union that focuses on serving the healthcare community, American River HealthPro knows the importance of investing in the future of medicine and is especially interested in supporting medical students who want to practice community medicine in the Sacramento region. In 2007, the American River HealthPro Credit Union Medical School Scholarship Endowment was established. Noe Gutierrez was awarded its first $5,000 scholarship. This year, the credit union continued its support of Noe and awarded an additional $5,000 scholarship to Amy Harley. The balance of funds raised went into the fund endowment.
