I am so grateful for the WAFP Foundation’s generosity to fund so many students for this conference. I realized how many in our field see medicine quite differently - and that this is a wonderful thing.

We have many students assisted by Foundation funds! Thanks to the Foundation, we've been able to provide funding to students to attend conferences and other terrific learning opportunities.

All the open discussions we had throughout the Student & Resident Retreat were so welcome; the panel on Rural Medicine was my favorite. Thank you!

The process for requesting funds from the Foundation has been seamless; you make it simple. I am unable to come up with anything that would need refining.
