|HPM student selected as Corris Boyd Scholar|
Mohamed Jalloh, first year master of health administration in health policy and management at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, was selected this summer as a 2012 Corris Boyd Scholarship recipient.
The Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA), in partnership with HCA, established the Corris Boyd Scholarship in 2006 in honor of a healthcare leader who dedicated his life to diversity and excellence in leadership - especially among people of color and women.
The HCA Corris Boyd Scholars Program annually provides two deserving minority students with $20,000 per year towards a master's degree in healthcare management from the AUPHA-member school of their choice.
Jalloh is a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Public Health, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health. "I believe that while this scholarship has been given to me, it is not for me," said Mohamed upon hearing of his selection. "To me, it is an investment in what I can do for everyone else. So, on behalf of all my peers, and to those I'll help in the future, I say thank you so very much."
The program was established in 2006 in honor of Corris Boyd, a senior healthcare executive with HealthTrust Purchasing Group and HCA. Mr. Boyd was dedicated to increasing diversity and a proponent of excellence in leadership. He died in 2005.
