We are excited to announce Pullman Scholar Alumna Pamela Bloomquist, Rockford College, 1974, as our Fourth Annual Pullman Scholar Symposium keynote speaker!
Pamela is the Assistant Dean, Admissions and Financial Aid at Loyola University Chicago School of Law and a very active volunteer with the Foundation.
Dean Bloomquist joined the law school in 1984 as the Director of Law Admission.
In 1992, she became the Director of Law Admission and Financial Assistance, and in 1999 was promoted to Assistant Dean.
2-3 pediatric clinics in Minnesota counties with high levels of child poverty and/or food insecurity will partner with the Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota and Community Action Program (CAP) navigators to assist pediatric clinicians in offering help to families, in a language they understand, to access public benefits and health insurance for which they are eligible, but not enrolled.
Benefits will include nutritious food assistance, nutrition education (WIC and SNAP-Ed), health insurance, early childhood scholarships, literacy support, and earned income tax credits.
She oversees JD admission and financial aid for the law school program, and first year registration.
