Foundation launches memorial scholarship fund

The Northwest Osteopathic Medical Foundation has established the Shirley Carpenter Endowment Scholarship Fund, named in memory of the AOA’s former northwest regional manager who died in 2003.

With financial support from the Montana Osteopathic Medical Association and others, the fund’s scholarships will be awarded to osteopathic medical students from the states Carpenter served: Alaska, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Utah.

Carpenter helped DOs in these states revitalize their osteopathic medical associations and organize continuing education medical programs. According to former AOA president Mitchell Kasovac, DO, Carpenter is among the “top 10” nonphysicians who helped expand the osteopathic medical profession.
