180 Medical, a leading nationwide supplier specializing in catheters, ostomy supplies, incontinence products, and related disposable medical supplies, is proud to announce the seven recipients of the 2019 180 Medical College Scholarship.
180 Medical was founded on principles of compassion and service.

Students eligible for the scholarships are often burdened by additional financial costs due to their health condition, so the 180 Medical Scholarship exists to help alleviate that burden and allow students to achieve their career dreams despite the medical challenges they face.
