Scott A. Gunder, MD, was a person with a vision to return something to the community that had given him so much. Early in his term as the 136th president of the Dauphin County Medical Society, he wanted to establish a scholarship for a deserving medical student. As a clinical assistant professor of medicine, and from his own experience, he knew the tremendous commitment it takes to earn a medical degree—and the high cost.
