Riverwood Foundation’s Michael Zilverberg Healthcare Education Endowment awarded $9,000 to support advanced nursing education for five Riverwood Healthcare Center employees.

The 2019 recipients include Beth Ambuehl, nurse educator; Nicole Bock, health unit coordinator; Joanna Brenny, registered nurse supervisor; Taylor Ehnstrom, nursing assistant; and Jodi Harwig, registered nurse.

The Michael Zilverberg Healthcare Education Endowment was started by Jeanette Zilverberg in 2004 to honor her late husband Michael, who was a strong community leader in Aitkin. Always supportive of education and helping others, he was especially interested in providing educational opportunities and scholarships for those working in health care at Riverwood. This endowment is to be used as a scholarship or educational fund to aid in the education and recruitment of health care professionals for Riverwood.
