Before the Affordable Care Act, there was a LPN named Janie B. Geer who was small in stature but had a bed-side manner that extended beyond the health clinic.  In 1972, she opened her heart and a health clinic in the basement of the New Elizabeth Church in Northwest Baltimore with the sole purpose of providing healthcare to those in need.

Because of this commitment, a health organization was founded by the name of Park West Health System.  Today, Park West Health System is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that provides health, dental and wellness services to all, keeping to Mrs. Geer's legacy of unconditionally serving those in need.  This scholarship fund for aspiring nurses in community health was created in her memory.
