D. Walter Cohen, DDS, with Woman One Scholar Dareen Elgin

Created by Woman One at the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership, this scholarship will be awarded in 2020, and will honor Dr. Cohen’s lifelong commitment to shared leadership among women and men, while also elevating underrepresented students in medicine.

The D. Walter Cohen Shared Leadership Scholarship is open to all students who are underrepresented in medicine and committed to practicing medicine in underserved communities and who have been accepted to Drexel University College of Medicine.

I love having the opportunity to become a contributing member to the Cohen Shared Leadership Scholarship. I really appreciate what the Woman One program did for me during my time in medical school.

About Dr. Cohen

D. Walter Cohen, DDS, was instrumental in the founding of the Woman One Award and Scholarship Fund, which has supported underrepresented MD program students at Drexel University College of Medicine since 2003. As a complement to Woman One, the D. Walter Cohen Shared Leadership Scholarship will promote the importance of shared leadership among women and men, while also addressing the problem of declining medical school applications from underrepresented students in medicine.
