Ultrasound technicians are often unsung heroes in the medical field.
For many mothers and families across the country receiving prenatal care, ultrasound technicians are critical in understanding the health, condition, and overall status of their children. Painting a clear picture for parents is important for them to prepare for their child’s entrance into the world with as much information as possible.
In Las Vegas four years ago, 40% of live births were of Hispanic infants. For many families, having a prenatal care physician of their ethnicity helps the process of childbirth and gives a family a sense of comfort, and restricts the lack of understanding that may be present otherwise.
To support Hispanic families and individuals in Las Vegas, the Lila Foundation Scholarship exists and will be awarded to one Hispanic student in the Las Vegas area who is interested in pursuing a career in ultrasonography, cardiac sonography, cardiac echo studies, doppler studies, or vascular studies.
While not required, it’s a plus if applicants are first-generation, value compassion, and have extensive non-profit or volunteering experience.
