Murray Brown, for the purpose of honouring Bermudians who have provided outstanding public service and providing scholarships for Bermudian students aspiring to careers in the medical field.
Since its inception in 2002, the Bermuda Health Foundation has provided over thirty scholarships to Bermudians of all ages who aspire to work in the medical field..
