    “The Pink Out is a fitting tribute to President Dow. She made lasting contributions to Oregon Tech. The Center for Health Professions was her vision and, today, it bears her name,” said Dr. Chris Maples, president of Oregon Tech. “Martha Anne Dow envisioned this building as a place to provide opportunities for educating students in health professions, where they would learn how to support physicians in detecting disease, imaging the human body, and caring for patients in a multitude of settings and disciplines.”

    The Martha Anne Dow Endowed Scholarship was established by the Oregon Tech President’s Advisory Council and is one of the competitive scholarships available to Oregon Tech students. “Giving to this scholarship is one very tangible and fitting way to keep the vision of Martha Anne Dow alive,” noted Maples.
