Bailey Matteson Receives Dr. Lovell Award

Bailey Matteson, class of 2017 from Black River High School in Ludlow, VT, is the seventh recipient of the Dr. E. Sherburn Lovell Health Career Award.  This award contributes $1,000 annually toward a student’s academic pursuit of a career in health care.  It is funded by the proceeds of the Apple Blossom Cotillion, a project of the Development Office of Springfield Medical Care Systems.  Dr. Lovell was a long-time physician at Springfield Hospital.  His daughters, Melissa Post and the late Elizabeth David, stated, “While he as a man who never sought recognition for his service in the medical field or in the community, we know he would be honored to have this award named in his memory.  We hope recipients of the award will share the same sense of wonder and fascination with the world of medicine that he did.”

Bailey will be a health science major at Franklin Pierce University in the fall.  She became interested in a career in health care when she attended the Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center’s (AHEC) MedQuest and Advanced MedQuest programs.  Bailey’s long term plan is to complete college with a nursing degree, and hopefully work in Vermont.  Bailey’s mother and grandmother are both nurses who work together in the operating room at Springfield Hospital.  They are currently the only mother/daughter team in Vermont and Bailey would love to join them as a third generation operating room nurse.  Pictured above is Bailey receiving the Dr. Lovell Award from Tonia Fleming of Springfield Medical Care System’s Development office and Beth Brothers of Southern Vermont AHEC.  Joining Bailey are her family, including her mother, April Worden, and her grandmother, Cindy Wooten, […]

Health Careers Collaborative Opportunity for NAO Membership with the Association of American Medical Colleges Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP)

NAO LogoFor a quarter of a century, the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP) successfully empowered students underrepresented in the health professions, and provided the proper resources and tools for students to successfully act upon their dreams in specific health careers. In 2016, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) program expanded to include students interested in ALL areas of health care, not just within the medical or dental profession, to provide an interprofessional education focus.

Today, the Summer Health Professions Education Program (formerly SMDEP) www.shpep.org sponsored by the AAMC, serves as the free, six-week academic enrichment program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Eligible students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage.

In our tradition of partnership, the NAO membership has been invited to partner with AAMC to share resource information about the SHPEP opportunity links and program brochure in your service regions, to better support and facilitate access to interested health career students who may benefit.

The AAMC encourages participants to apply and take the opportunity to join this FREE, summer enrichment program that is filled with countless career development opportunities. For more information, click here.

Learn more about the new educational opportunities provided by the Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) and apply today at www.shpep.org.

Students are encouraged to apply early.  Early application deadline is February 1, 2017 and regular applications must be received by March 1, 2017.
