Master of Health Administration Student receives National Scholarship

August 5, 2015

Elizabeth Arana of the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health has been selected as one of six students awarded the Albert W. Dent scholarship from the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). This national scholarship was established in honor of Albert W. Dent, the first African-American Fellow of ACHE, and is awarded to high achieving minority students in health care management graduate programs.

Arana is a second-year master of health administration student (MHA) who works as an administrative intern at Brazos Valley Women’s Center in Bryan, Texas. This position has provided her the opportunity to apply the curriculum taught in the classroom to the routine operations of a private practice.

U.S. News and World Reports recently ranked the school’s MHA program as one of the top 35 best graduate health care management programs nationwide.
