In honor of 180 Medical's President Ron Howell's retirement this year, America's top provider of intermittent catheters, ostomy products, and incontinence products has launched the Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship. The 180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship is open to college students who are unpaid caregivers to a family member or loved one and plan to attend a 2-year, 4-year, or graduate school program in the fall.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- 180 Medical, a leading nationwide supplier of intermittent catheters and ostomy supplies, is proud to announce the launch of an annual college scholarship: the Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship. As 180 Medical President Ron Howell retires this year, the new namesake scholarship award is open to college students who are unpaid caregivers to a family member or loved one and plan to attend a 2-year, 4-year, or graduate school program in the fall.

Ron Howell's background in the United States Air Force taught him core values of "integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do." When Ron continued his career path as a civilian after retiring from the service, he found a perfect fit at 180 Medical, where compassion, service, and integrity are components of their value system too. Howell understands the importance of rewarding the amazing work of caregivers across the nation.

180 Medical is taking applications from now until June 1, 2020. Winner will be announced on 180 Medical's Facebook page by August 1, 2020.

In addition to the new Caregiver Scholarship Program, 180 Medical has nearly 8 years of experience in providing college scholarships to students each year as a way to give back. 180 Medical is honored to be able to help students from all journeys of life achieve their career dreams through higher education. Now we are even more proud to extend this opportunity through a new scholarship that recognizes the compassion, integrity, and sacrifice that so many in-home caregivers offer their loved ones.

"We're thrilled to be able to implement a scholarship program that can offer a helping hand to caregivers, who often work so hard and give so much to their loved ones while also working to achieve their own goals. Additionally, we're just so proud to be able to honor Ron Howell for his valued years of leadership and service to 180 Medical." – Angie Christopher, Director of Human Resources
