CHS, Traverse City go pink in memory of student

Posted on May 07, 2015

Students, faculty and staff at the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences and the Traverse City Center went pink May 6 in memory of Stephanie Urbanawiz, a physician assistant studies major who died in February after battling breast cancer.

The RPC Student Society, the PAS student organization, organized the event.

Andrew Booth, assistant professor and chair of PAS, said Urbanawiz’s classmates wanted to honor her memory and raise money for a scholarship fund established in her name.

The fund, established by the Urbanawiz family and PAS program will benefit Grand Valley’s Physician Assistant Studies department; click here to make a contribution.

PAS students and faculty members at CHS were joined by colleagues from the College of Health Professions and Kirkhof College of Nursing who wore pink and helped raise money for the scholarship.
