Pat Tillman Foundation can’t fulfill its mission to empower military veterans and their spouses without the generosity of our supporters across the country. Nationwide, over 400 Tillman Scholars are striving to impact our country and communities through their studies in medicine, law, business, policy, science, education and the arts. Every “Tillman Tuesday,” we are committed to highlighting the individual impact of a Tillman Scholar, focusing on their success in school, career and community—all thanks to your support. This week we learn more about 2015 Tillman Scholar Sarah-Blythe Ballard who joined the U.S. Navy in 2002 at the same time she began medical school. Since 2012, Lieutenant Commander Ballard has been stationed in Peru, where she is working towards a vaccine for Malaria while completing her dissertation for her Ph.D. in International Health from Johns Hopkins University.
