HUNTINGTON — A local physician and Marshall alumnus, Scott E. Moore, MD, and his wife, Rebecca, have established a scholarship with Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine to help aspiring physicians from the southern coalfields of West Virginia.
Scott Moore, a native of Matthews, West Virginia, is a graduate of Matthews High School and Alice Lloyd College in Peppa Pasise, Kentucky. He received his MD from Joan C. Edwards College of Medicine in 2004 and completed his residency at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts. He is now a diagnostic radiologist at Ashland.
“I am truly grateful for the outstanding teaching, guidance, and support provided to the College of Medicine,” said Scott Moore. “Through this scholarship, I hope to help, encourage, and inspire our future physician leaders. I have been given so much along the way. I am so happy and blessed to be able to help.”
The Dr. Scott E. Moore Scholarship is intended for entry-level medical students from Mingo County, West Virginia. Second preference will be given to students from the surrounding counties of Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, or Wayne. The scholarship is renewable for an additional three years, pending normal academic progress.
