As a former competitive swimmer and coach for inner-city kids, Dainon Miles understands how physical activity makes people healthier and happier.
Scholarship support helped bring Dainon to Dell Medical School, where he developed a nationally recognized project to connect doctors, nurses and social workers with resources at the YMCA of Austin.
My scholarship helped me stay focused without having to worry about the tremendous financial burden medical school traditionally places on students.
