The Silence of Grieving

The Silence of Grieving



Grieving, it became a road upon which I lost even the appearance of listening. Trying to recover from the TBI this past year has been in direct opposition of the silence of the previous road. Grieving was such a silent road, one lost in the dark with no glimmer of any sound or light. Some would say this was a road of depression yet I would beg to differ. I was grieving, I was SAD, I was so lost I could only rely on 2 mentors to guide me to where I needed to go… Continue

A great big thank you to Captain Ken Lapee for 20 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Okaloosa County!

Medical Scholarship Opportunity for Veterans!

USFRA.org and Wellcentive is proud to support future healthcare professionals with their first Medical Scholarship for Veterans. This scholarship will be awarded to one achievement-focused student intending to pursue a career in Medicine.

Inspired by one of our co-founders who is a former United States Marine, Wellcentive stands in support of our armed forces who valiantly serve and protect our interests and citizens around the world, and especially those who wish to contribute to the field of Medicine. That’s why we are awarding $1,000 to one veteran pursuing a Doctor of Medicine degree.

Medicine is a challenging field of study. We know that tomorrow’s doctors, nurses, researchers and care workers put in long hours of study every day. Our hope is that this scholarship will help remove some financial obstacles and allow a passionate student to dedicate their time to succeeding academically. We feel this is particularly important for veterans, who have already made such great sacrifices to help others.
