Congratulations to the recent recipients of the Employers Medical Access Partnership (E.MAP) presented to students enrolled in the Conemaugh School of Nursing and Allied Health programs at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center. E.MAP rewards scholarships to worthy candidates who are pursuing careers in the medical field.
