The Karen Poulsen Brown scholarship, established in 2020 by the Needs Beyond Medicine Board of Directors, commemorates Karen's unwavering dedication to family, community, and her 25-year service in the nursing field. In honor of her legacy, this $1,000 scholarship aims to assist aspiring nursing students in covering specific college education expenses. Karen died in 1996 after a valiant fight against ovarian cancer, and this scholarship has been established in an attempt to aid future nursing students who represent the same level of commitment, enthusiasm, and positive attitude that she exhibited.
