Palmyra, WI (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU) student Kaylee Shimomura is the 2013 recipient of the Dr. Robert Curry Scholarship. Standard Process Inc., offers the $10,000 scholarship to inspire students at the university to study whole food nutrition while pursuing a degree in integrative health care.
Shimomura, an eighth trimester student at SCU studying chiropractic, is the third student to earn the scholarship. She plans to practice in her hometown of Kula, Hawaii, applying the fundamentals of good health, nutrition and chiropractic care learned at SCU to change her community’s view on diet, exercise and overall health.
Whole food supplement manufacturer Standard Process committed to the SCU scholarship program in 2010 following the retirement of Southern California distributor, chiropractor Robert Curry, who was an SCU alumnus. Throughout his career, Curry supported and educated fellow Southern California health care professionals as they learned about the role whole food nutrition plays in a healthy lifestyle.
“Standard Process is committed to supporting students who have an interest in implementing nutrition into their future practices,” said John Nab, D.C., director of professional development at Standard Process. “By learning how nutrition affects health outcomes they can support their patients’ total well-being.”
The Dr. Robert Curry Scholarship program provides $10,000 to a SCU student. To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must:
- Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.9 or higher
- Provide a list of their contributions to the profession, SCU and the community
- Provide a letter of recommendation from an SCU professor
- Submit a 500-750 word essay on how they will work to improve the health of their patients and the community where they establish a practice
This year, the scholarship was presented to Shimomura during the university’s Extravaganza VIP Reception held on Oct. 19, 2013.
