Home > Dr. Edward Leitão Memorial Fund

MAPS is pleased to support the Dr. Edward Leitão Memorial Scholarship Fund as its fiscal agent. The fund is intended to provide scholarships for Portuguese-American students pursuing medical careers.

Colleagues and friends of the late Dr. Edward Leitão established the Scholarship Fund in the name of this much-loved and highly respected physician, who passed away as a victim of cancer on February 4, 2015.

Dr. Leitão served at the Cambridge Health Alliance for several decades as a well-respected internist and medical director, caring for many patients in the Portuguese-speaking community of the Cambridge area.
