Adrienne Poteete

Dear School of Medicine Alumni Chapter,

My name is Adrienne Poteete and I am a second-year medical student at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. I was honored to receive the School of Medicine Alumni Chapter Scholarship and am grateful for the opportunities it will provide me. As a native Nevadan, I dreamed of going to medical school here in Reno for as long as I can remember. Early on in my education, I found that I had a passion for science and the exploration and discovery it inspires.

Reno is near and dear to my heart, so combining this passion with improving the health and wellbeing of a community I love is my lifelong dream. When I'm not studying, I enjoy finding new and challenging hikes in the area, reading, and spending time at beautiful Lake Tahoe. This scholarship will be extremely helpful throughout this year of medical school. Because of your generosity, the financial burden of my medical education will be reduced. This means I can spend more time on my studies, research, and extracurricular activities and less time worrying about my finances. Thank you for your investment in Nevada's healthcare through supporting medical students like myself.
