Making College More Affordable
We’re making college more affordable for local students.
Our 2022 Wisdom For Wisdom program helped to offset some of the costs of college by providing free wisdom teeth removal for two New Jersey students. After having their wisdom teeth removed, the students will be treated with EXPAREL®, a non-opioid, long-lasting treatment that will ensure a healthy recovery after the procedure.
Jacob, 24, is a college student living in Monroe Township. In his application, Jacob wrote about the financial stress that has come with paying for his education. Jacob also mentioned that he had a procedure performed by Dr. Simos after he had broken his jaw.
Alexander, 18, just graduated from East Brunswick High School and plans to attend Rowan University. In his application, Alexander wrote about how many unexpected costs there have been already as he prepares to go to college, and how our Wisdom For Wisdom program would help him and his family.
We wish every student the best as they pursue their academic endeavors.
