BK Allergy: Health Helper Scholarship

BK Allergy ScholarshipAs allergy, asthma and immunology specialists, Black & Kletz Allergy strives to help our patients feel healthy in the face of conditions that can debilitate them on a daily basis. We know that it can be a challenge to participate in daily responsibilities and activities when one is not feeling well or is physically unable to do these things. We feel good about the work we do in providing our patients with individualized healthcare plans to help them to get the most out of their everyday lives.

At Black & Kletz Allergy, we know and appreciate that it often takes a team of people to keep a person feeling healthy on a daily basis. From doctors and nurses, to mental health workers and therapists, from alternative medicine practitioners and lab technicians, from researchers to hospital administrators to lawyers and more- we appreciate and value the work our (often unknown) team members do when they administer, or help patients to get, the kind of care that a patient needs to feel as good as they can.

We think we are fortunate to be able to do this on a daily basis in our professional lives and have created our BK Allergy: Health Helper Scholarship to help support a student who has similar goals to ours- to help people get healthy and to feel better on a daily basis.
