We're excited to announce our new scholarship, the Lark Diabetes Prevention Scholarship, which aims to raise awareness and put added focus on preventive health. Lark is a healthcare company that helps prevent chronic illness, and we want to inspire students to come up with solutions to help improve the health of others around them.
It consists of three awards totaling $3,500 per year ($2,000, $1,000, and $500).
Apply Now - Fall
Deadline: August 26th, 2018
Deadline: December 17th, 2018
Our requirement is simple. We want you to submit a 1-2 page essay detailing an initiative you would like to see happen -- were you a policy maker, health insurance executive, entrepreneur, or public health advocate -- to prevent or delay one of the most pressing health issues facing Americans today.
An example is the Diabetes Prevention Program, a nationwide initiative modeled after the landmark study showing that a healthy diet low in starches, more exercise, and 5-7% body weight loss could delay the onset of diabetes and prevent the progression to diabetes of prediabetes by 58%! This insight has since become a nationwide initiative, covered by most health plans, medicaid plans, and medicare. It is making a true difference in the lives of those who are at risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
So, what's the next great preventive health frontier?
