Wells Fargo continues support for the Healthy Appalachia Institute at UVa-Wise

Building on the success of the establishment of the Wells Fargo Healthy Appalachia Student Fellows Awards last fall, Wells Fargo has renewed its support for undergraduate research at the institute.

The new award from Wells Fargo will support the undergraduate research enterprise at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise and the Healthy Appalachia Institute, and also help bolster the institute’s mission-critical work by creating additional service and learning opportunities for students in southwestern Virginia as an avenue to increase the number of health professionals in the region.

Support from Wells Fargo will also help ensure that students from the region are engaged in the institute’s work to advance educational opportunity, encourage prosperity and improve health outcomes.

For more information on the Healthy Appalachia Institute, please visit, or contact Marcia Quesenberry, co-director, at 276-328-0254.
