Scholarship Spotlight

Erkan Bertram

2014 Kim & Ruth MacCloskey RAMI Music Scholarship

After accepting the RAMI award, I attended and graduated from Union College with a major in Biology and a minor in both Music and Economics. With my degree, I applied and was accepted into the University of Washington, Seattle campus where I am pursuing a Masters in Healthcare Administration (MHA). Thus far I have completed one of two years in the program. Additionally, I am currently interning with the Population Health department at HealthPoint which is a community health center. My project revolves around Transitions of Care and creating a program in which discharged patients from the hospital and emergency room are being provided adequate follow up care and are transitioned back into HealthPoint clinics.
