Help a Public Health Student in Vietnam

Tax deductible
This recent photo shows graduate students in a study group in Public Health at Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Vietnam. Five students’ attention is focused on one available laptop computer. It is difficult to learn to use a computer by only watching someone else.

Five years ago this reality inspired MEDRIX President, Robert Catherman, to initiate the MEDRIX laptop scholarship. Eligible candidates for the scholarships must:
• show high academic potential,
• come from economically disadvantaged families.

In May,2024, MEDRIX plans to provide a laptop computer for another deserving student. Your donation of any amount toward a laptop scholarship will support a dedicated medical student in completing their education and then continuing on to improve the health of their Vietnamese community for years to come.
Donation is simple – click the Donate Now button and follow the instructions. And please share this project with your friends. Thank you.
P.S. The 2023 recipient of the laptop scholarship thanked MEDRIX donors saying, “The MEDRIX scholarship is not only meaningful to myself but also meaningful to my entire family because my parents have been working hard for a long time but they cannot afford the tool for my studying.”
