With NEF scholarship winner Dina Salvatore we have a two time winner. Dina is continuing to pursue her graduate degree at the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing. One of Dina’s primary concerns is the lack of sufficient medical care in the rural island community where she lives. The rural community is federally designated as being medically underserved. Dina hopes to improve this primary care crisis by lessening the provider shortage and making her contribution to the well being and vitality of the island and its residents.
