Scholarship to honor Indian-origin health worker

New York: A scholarship fund is being set up in New Jersey, the hometown of the young Indian-origin emergency health worker Hinal Patel, who was killed on duty when a car slammed into her ambulance.

It was in June this year that the 22-year-old Spotswood Emergency Medical Technician was killed while hurrying to an accident site in an ambulance.

Patel, who was a Piscataway native, hoped to become a doctor and wanted to continue with her medical studies at the Graduate School of Biomedical Science at Rutgers University. At the time of her death, she was working her final shift for the Spotswood EMS.

News website informed that the Patel scholarship would be awarded to one deserving Spotswood High School senior each spring. It will also help to keep alive Patel’s memory.

The Kloos family, who are locals, follow an annual tradition of decking their home with lights and holiday decorations, and collect donations for various causes. Visiting residents this year would be able to donate for Patel’s scholarship fund.
