Congratulations to Westminster alums Arielle Melen ('17 Neuroscience, Honors), Seth Biehn ('21 Biology), and Rebekah Ford ('21 Neuroscience, Honors) on becoming three of the first 11 medical school scholarship recipients in the Population Health Scholars Program. 

The alums are studying to be leaders in keeping people and communities healthy through prevention, in a partnership between Intermountain Healthcare and the University of Utah.

“How can we prevent these issues such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, obesity, problems like that,” Melen told KSL TV. “It’s given me more purpose now than ever to see how physicians can positively impact communities.”
