The ColoHealth "Health, Lifestyle and the Health Care System" Scholarship

ColoHealth strongly encourages most young adults to pursue higher education and a college degree. Competition in the global job market is more competitive than ever, making it important to take advantage of every opportunity to learn and improve yourself so you can become  more valuable to the world and have a greater impact.

College is more than simply getting a degree - it also means learning basic skills you’ll need throughout your lifetime. Skills such as self-discipline, working well with others, maintaining a budget, and balancing work and family are crucial and lead to a better quality of life.

At ColoHealth, we also believe young adults should be aware of social issues affecting our country, including one of the most important and most talked about subjects - health care. Having access to quality medical care can certainly improve long-term health and longevity. However, most modern chronic diseases are lifestyle related, and modern medicine rarely offers a cure.
