Patient, Caregiver Scholarship Recipients for 2012 Social Media Summit
The Center for Social Media has been amazed and humbled at the response to this year's patient/caregiver scholarship contest. There were 36 strong applicants, from which we had to choose fifteen finalists and the three scholarship recipients. This was not an easy job, all the motivating essays made it very difficult for our judges.
These three recipients will have travel and lodging expenses, along with complimentary registration, to come to our Mayo Clinic campus in Rochester, Minn. during the week of Oct. 15, 2012 to participate in Social Media Week. They also may bring a companion to all the week's events, although the scholarships do not include travel and lodging for the companion.
In alphabetical order, here are the three scholarship recipients. Click the links below to view the essays they submitted for the contest.
Thanks again to everyone who submitted essays as well as to those who voted online to help choose the finalists, and to members of our judging panel who made the final selections.
