POA Pharma GmbH, a speciality pharmaceutical company based in Sprockhövel, has announced the winners of its Medical Nutrition Scholarship Award for 2023 as Emilie Göllner and Kim Hamberger.

The award, which was created by POA Pharma’s parent company, Galen Ltd, aims to support people across Europe with metabolic disorders, such as Phenylketonuria (PKU) and Tyrosinemia (TYR), achieve their career goals through further education, training and development courses or apprenticeships.

Speaking on the award, Rens Reinhoudt, POA Pharma GmbH’s Managing Director, stated: “At POA Pharma, our purpose is to be of extraordinary service to our patients, healthcare professionals and partners and so we were thrilled to be able to offer this scholarship to the IMD community. We want to congratulate Kim and Emilie on their success, and we look forward to hearing how the scholarship benefits their studies.”

As part of the scholarship prize, Kim and Emilie will receive a bursary towards their higher education as well as a technology package worth €2,000.

Kim, who studies medicine in Ulm noted: “Due to my illness, it has always been my big dream to study medicine, to help other people and to give something back. But studying takes a long time, is very demanding and without financial support it is a real challenge. Therefore, I am very grateful to have been selected as a winner of this year’s Medical Nutrition scholarship. The financial support and the great technology package will enable me to get the most out of my studies, stay on the ball and ultimately make my dream of becoming a doctor come true.”

Emilie, who is also pursuing a degree in medicine stated: “In addition to the technical equipment that is necessary in any study nowadays, the study of medicine still requires the purchase of many expensive textbooks that are indispensable for the study and the work afterwards. With both, the necessary equipment with digital technology as well as the purchase of the necessary textbooks, the study scholarship will help me immensely.”
