San Diego, CA – November 18, 2015 – VIP NeuroRehabilitation Center (VIP) is proud to announce that it has been awarded $10,000 by the Cushman Foundation to support the VIP Scholarship Program. This program was designed in 2015 to assist military, veterans, and low income patients. This grant is a huge stepping stone to reaching VIP’s goal of giving $25,000 to patients through the VIP Scholarship Program.
Additionally, $6,000 of this grant will be designated to specifically support new veteran patients. VIP is honored to give back to the military and those who have given so much for this country.
