NAMS/Irwin J. Kerber Membership Scholarship Endowment

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.

 Irwin J. Kerber

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 (carolyn@menopause.org).          

“I am so honored to have been selected for the NAMS/Irwin J. Kerber Membership Scholarship Endowment. I would like to thank Dr. Kerber as well as the wonderful mentors who I have had the honor of working with during my training. It is because of them that I have decided to pursue a career focusing on women’s health, and I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge through NAMS and being a part of this wonderful organization in the future.”
—Chelsi M. Jackson, MD
