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.

Dr. Irwin J Kerber

The endowment provides a NAMS membership and meeting registration 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.

The receipients have included:
Ann Vale, MD (2017)
Clayton Brown, MD (2015)
Amy M Hernandez, MD (2014)
Chelsi M Jackson, MD (2013)
