  • Scholarship Description
  • The Hutchinson Medical School Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Hutchinson by numerous friends, colleagues, patients and community leaders who honored them at a gala dinner in 1994 and, at the same time, contributed generously toward the establishment of this medical school scholarship. Dr. and Mrs. Hutchinson intend the scholarship to assist young people who aspire to attend medical school and to recognize students who demonstrate excellence in both character and academic achievement. James and Evelyn Hutchinson have been partners and builders of their family and community for more than four decades. Dr. Hutchinson, past president of the local NAACP, was a founding board member of both Planned Parenthood of San Mateo and the Bay Area Urban League. Dr. Hutchinson's medical practice has always been based on the care of the patient and family as a whole. Known as the 'walking doctor' of San Mateo, he started walking six to eight miles a day near his office in 1982. He says that walking helps relieve stress and that being out and about has given him more insight into his community. He has gathered scores of followers in walking for fitness and pleasure.
