The Dorothy S Hall Endowed Scholarship in Physician Assistant Studies

Dorothy S Hall was an accomplished businesswoman, philanthropist, and dear friend of the PA Program. She always found time, while raising three daughters, to support and fill several philanthropic positions.

We are forever grateful to this incredible woman for her support of our program.
