About the Scholarship Fund

The fund is intended to provide scholarships for Portuguese-American students pursuing careers in the health field. 

 

Colleagues and friends of the late Dr. Leitão established the Fund in his honor in 2015 with the objective of holding an annual fundraising luncheon to celebrate his legacy and present scholarships to future physicians and other health professionals in New England.

About Dr. Edward Leitão

Dr. Edward O. Leitão passed away in Boston on February 4, 2015, after a courageous fight with bladder cancer. Ed was a dear friend and colleague who served Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) for several decades as a well-respected internist and medical director
