2019 Rossnick Humanitarian Grant Recipients

October 26, 2019

The AOF Rossnick Humanitarian Grants program is named in honor of the late Joni B. Rossnick, DO, whose parents established the grant in their daughter’s memory. The Rossnick Humanitarian Grants program provides funding for osteopathic students and residents to participate in international medical service trips. By supporting the costs associated with travel to underserved, underdeveloped or disaster-stricken areas, Rossnick grants help ensure access to medical care for people who need it the most.

In 2019, the AOF has approved 39 grant requests to fund osteopathic medical outreach in 14 countries worldwide:
