Community Outreach

The original board of directors felt it important that Marshall Medical Centers played a role in developing Marshall County for the better.

The Foundation is still involved in community outreach in a number of ways including:

Scholarship Programs

Scholarship Programs promote higher education for students who are interested in pursuing a career in a healthcare profession and employees who want to further their education to benefit the patients they serve. The goal of the scholarship programs is to build a better workforce for Marshall Medical Centers out of the people who believe in it most – its residents. For more information on scholarship programs, contact The Foundation at 256-571-8206 or by .

INSPIRE: A Youth Art Contest

INSPIRE: A Youth Art Contest is held annually for children grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in celebration of Youth Art Month, a nationally recognized annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs. Winning art pieces are hung in prominent places for one year at both Marshall Medical Centers – depending on the location of the participating school. Prizes are awarded to first, second, and third place winners in each division and to "Best of Show," "People’s Choice," and "Physician’s Choice." A reception is held to honor these students, their parents and educators in April and introduces all attendees to the importance of quality healthcare in our community.

Annual Cancer
Survivors' Dinner

Each year the Foundation partners with the Marshall Cancer Care Center to celebrate all cancer survivors in Marshall County with an evening of food, fun and entertainment. The survivors and their guests are the reason The Foundation works so hard to maintain quality healthcare in our community.
