BOP Medical Students Scholarship Award 2018

Big congratulations to the 2018 winner of the Acorn Foundation BOP Medical Students Scholarship, Josh Read!  Josh attended Aquinas College and is the first in his family to study Medicine. He has just completed his fourth year at Otago University, and he hopes to go on to specialise in Orthopaedics. Josh is currently based at Tauranga Hospital, doing a research project on the effects of red light on the sleeping patterns of hospital patients.

Josh was delighted to be the 9th recipient of this prestigious award, as the $4,000 prize will take a lot of the financial pressure off his studies next year. All the best for a very bright future for Josh Read!
