About Us

Healthy Living Scholarship

Minnesota Vein Center is dedicated to promoting vein health in the community. However, as leaders in the medical field, we are also committed to advocating overall health and wellness among the public. Good health can be achieved by maintaining a proper diet and nutrition plan, exercising regularly, and practicing emotional and environmental awareness. We believe that the most effective means of spreading useful health and wellness information is to cultivate an understanding of ourselves, our earth and the lifestyle choices that we face.

The Healthy Living Scholarship is offered by Minnesota Vein Center to provide an advantage to those who reflect the stimulus of positive change through demonstrated awareness. We hope to award individuals who embody positive beliefs pertaining to diet, nutrition, physical fitness and emotional wellbeing and our ecological impact.
