Scholarship recipients will share Ms. Aaberg Givans' unwavering dedication and passion for ensuring access to quality health care for children and youth.

In addition to the financial support, there will be a future opportunity for scholarship recipients to visit Sacramento for a day of mentoring.

Recipients visited CSCC's offices, participated in a roundtable lunch with professional children's advocates, and enjoyed an afternoon of one-on-one job shadowing. They also toured the State Capitol and had the opportunity to meet Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins, California's first female Senate leader.
