“I cannot express enough gratitude about being named a Tandigm scholar. It shows that there are still some who are committed to Primary Care and see the value in the work that we do. I could not be more excited about the opportunities this scholarship will give me, in both a mentoring capacity, as well as finally laying my debt to rest.”Lori Truman-Kraft, MD
