Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship from 180 Medical

caregiver and parent

180 Medical is proud to present a caregiver scholarship opportunity for college students.

Whether providing assistance and in-home care for an aging parent or a disabled child or spouse, caregivers are the heart of the home. They often handle bathing, grooming, feeding, transporting, and even ordering medical supplies such as catheters, incontinence products, and ostomy supplies.

At 180 Medical, we often speak one-on-one with caregivers. We understand and have witnessed firsthand the compassion and integrity that so many caregivers demonstrate in their daily tasks for their loved ones, despite the daily challenges and financial hardships that may sometimes go hand-in-hand with caregiving.

In honor of caregivers and their future career goals, 180 Medical created the Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship Award as a way to give back.
