In 2012, the first NAMS member-initiated endowment was established. This endowment honors long-time NAMS member Irwin J. Kerber, MD, NCMP, from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, in Dallas, Texas.
The endowment provides a NAMS membership to one medical resident each year. This will allow a physician in-training to receive the journal Menopause and enjoy all the other benefits of NAMS membership and also develop a strong foundation in women’s health.
We are pleased to announce that the recipient of this scholarship award this year is Chelsi M. Jackson, MD, from Tyler, Texas. Dr. Jackson’s NAMS membership will begin in January 2014.
If you are interested in finding out more about how you might establish a NAMS endowment, please contact Ms. Carolyn Develen, in the NAMS Central Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
