New Camp Scholarships Honor Tim Weaver
At the Oley annual conference earlier this year, Fresenius Kabi announced its plans to provide summer camp scholarships to the Oley Foundation. The scholarships, offered in honor of Oley member Tim Weaver, will be to camps in the United States that are designed for children with chronic health issues and serious illnesses. Most of these camps do not charge a fee; the goal of the scholarships is to help offset the costs of getting to and from camp.
In making the announcement, Pat Anthony, head of medical affairs for clinical nutrition at Fresenius Kabi USA, said, “Many of us at Fresenius Kabi recently had the opportunity to get to know Tim and one thing we learned was how important his summer camp experience was in helping him manage his health and his outlook on life. Our hope is that, through these scholarships, others will have a similar experience and enjoy themselves while creating summer camp memories that last a lifetime. We’re also very excited Tim will be part of the selection process for naming the scholarship winners.”
More details on the scholarship will be announced in the near future, including the application process and criteria, for attendance at camp in the summer of 2015. Make sure we have your e-mail address!
