ACMS Foundation Scholarship Fund:
Arlington County Medical Society is proud to present the ACMS Foundation Scholarship Fund, initiated in 2015 by physician members, as a means to give back to the future of medicine.
The foundation aims to annually award a $10,000 scholarship to a local high school senior interested in pursuing higher education studies in medicine or healthcare. We continue to support our local students in their pursuit of a career in the healthcare sector, where the challenges, financial burden and professional requirements are at the highest levels. Please consider donating to this worthy cause and help us raise funds for this amazing scholarship as a gift that gives back to our communities and pays it forward towards the future of health!
The Sharon McGowan Breast Health Fund
The Sharon McGowan Breast Health Fund (SMBHF) was established through the Arlington County Medical Society Foundation (ACMSF) and the McGowan Family in 1997 in memory of Sharon McGowan, an Arlington resident, who courageously fought breast cancer while raising seven children.
The SMBHF and The Arlington County Medical Society Foundation work hard to raise necessary funds that will benefit uninsured women and men in the northern Virginia area, including Arlington and surrounding communities. We coordinate with the Virginia Hospital Center and their anesthesiologists, oncologists, pathologists, surgeons, and radiologists to provide the care these patients need. It is our hope that these efforts will help to eradicate many cases of breast cancer by providing means for early detection!
In 2008, we started collaborating with the Nurse Managed Health Center at Marymount University in order to improve prevention and treatment of breast cancer in our communities’ vulnerable populations through targeted research. Much of this work is made possible by a grant from the SMBHF.
