"We know how expensive higher education is and through these scholarships we can help defray the costs while continuing to support the growth of medical investment in the community," said Kirk Dornfeld, M.D., Olson-Anderson Foundation chairperson.
The Olson-Anderson Foundation was established in 1997 with funds contributed by Owatonna Clinic physicians. It is named after Owatonna Clinic founders, Dr. A. J. Olson and Dr. Frank Anderson, both family physicians. The two physicians cared for patients in Owatonna for nearly 40 years and the scholarship honors their commitment to the community, medicine and education.
