In honor of Dr. Boake Plessy’s contributions to UConn Health, we have established a scholarship fund that is used to support educational enhancement for students who have participated in the Aetna HPPI Doctors Academy and are planning to continue their education at the post-secondary level. The Friends of the Department of Health Career Opportunity Programs – Boake L. Plessy, Ph.D. Scholarship Fund gives these students an opportunity to continue pursuing leadership positions in the health field.
Other ways to support the Health Career Opportunity Programs include making a gift to the following funds:
Elbert A. Powell Minority Enrichment Fund – supporting educational opportunities taught by leaders in community health and minority professional development
West Middle School Great Explorations Program – program and operational support for HCOP programming at Hartford’s West Middle School
John and Valerie Rowe Health Professions Scholars Program Endowment Fund
