Shelly Fuller Health Education Scholarship Fund


Shelley Fuller, former HEAU board member, died on March 10, 1996 due to complications related to cancer. During her board tenure, Shelley was instrumental in changes that influenced the vision and vitality of HEAU. She single-handedly built the health education division at FHP, a managed care organization. This required her to work tirelessly with clinicians to help them understand the value of prevention in general and the health education profession specifically. Shelley had the tenacity to translate her ideas to fruition. She was passionate about health education and ensured that all health educators at FHP were CHES certified. She believed that to be a good health educator, one must actively participate in improving the profession. Shelley had a zest for life and enjoyed the association of a host of friends. We remember her for her leadership, her spirit, her ready smile, her sense of humor, her vibrant laugh, her compassion in reaching out to others, and her courage and integrity to initiate and finish so many meaningful personal and professional endeavors. In her memory, the Shelley Fuller Health Education Scholarship Fund was created by HEAU in 1996.

A scholarship up to the amount of $500.00 may be awarded annually to a graduate or undergraduate student(s) enrolled on a full-time basis and accepted into a health education program of study at Brigham Young University, the University of Utah, Utah State University, Weber State University, or Utah Valley University.
