California State University, StanislausSanté Health System Scholar
Escaping an impoverished and abusive childhood, Robin Fredeking found a nurturing unofficial foster family when he was 13. Now, he is dedicated to helping others. After receiving the Dean’s Medal of Excellence and graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Stanislaus State in 2019, Robin began working toward a master’s degree in the university’s family nurse practitioner program.
Robin is a registered nurse, has volunteered with the California Forensic Medical Group and Urban Shield, and has provided criticalcare transport service in the Central Valley. He received the March of Dimes Emergency Nurse of the Year award while working in Las Vegas. The lack of highly skilled medical practitioners in the Central Valley powers Robin’s passion for health, science and humanity to provide medical care to underserved families in his community.
