Jewish Hospital Foundation announces Christerson Nursing Scholarship

Louisville, KY. – Members of the Grand Lakes Yacht Club, friends of the Christerson's, are working with the Jewish Hospital Foundation in establishing the Tom Christerson and Family Nursing Scholarship.

His friends initiated the scholarship to recognize the outstanding nursing care Mr. Christerson received while he was a patient at Jewish Hospital. The scholarship will be used to certify nurses in the cardiovascular field, with an emphasis on technology.

The nursing candidates may attend any accredited nursing school.

As part of the Friends for Nursing Scholarship Program, the Jewish Hospital Foundation will oversee the Christerson Scholarship Fund. The goal is to award the first scholarship during the Fall of 2003.

Donations may be made to the Christerson Scholarship Fund, c/o Jewish Hospital Foundation. Contact Keith Inman, Executive Director of the Jewish Hospital Foundation at (502) 587-4060.
