Shaw Family Medical is committed to promoting and encouraging the pursuit of careers in the medical field. Since opening in 2012, Shaw Family Medical has awarded allied health stipends biennially to graduating seniors at Shaw High School that aspire to pursue a career in an allied health profession. The stipend is awarded for a total of 4 semesters in the amount of $125 per semester. Applicants must submit an essay and meet GPA requirements to qualify for this stipend. In 2015, each stipend was awarded in honor of a healthcare professional that inspired or influenced the owner of Shaw Family Medical to strive for excellence in healthcare delivery.
In 2013, Shaw Family Medical began awarding allied health stipends biennially to graduating seniors at Shaw High School that aspired to pursue a career in an allied health profession. The first $500 stipends were awarded to 2 graduating seniors for a total of 4 semesters in the amount of $125 per semester. In 2015, the stipends were awarded to 6 graduating seniors at Shaw High School. Also, in 2015, it was decided to name the stipends in honor of "Trailblazer" health care professionals who inspired or influenced the owner of Shaw Family Medical, Dr. Nora Gough-Davis to strive for excellence in healthcare delivery.
