Med Center Health has announced it will match contributions dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000, to the recently established Rebecca D. Shadowen Research and Education Fund. Med Center Health Foundation created the fund to recognize the achievements of Dr. Shadowen during her career as a practicing physician in Southcentral Kentucky and continue growth in the areas of research and education.
Dr. Shadowen often remarked, “science improves outcomes for patients and saves lives.” Monies donated in honor and recognition of Dr. Shadowen will be used to fund research projects and clinical trials, to support travel expenses for researchers presenting projects at state and national meetings, and to bring nationally renowned healthcare speakers to educate our local medical community. Connie Smith, President & CEO of Med Center Health, stated, “Dr. Rebecca Shadowen will always be remembered as an extraordinary physician, an educator, and a mentor who truly enjoyed teaching residents, medical students, and members of our community. Med Center Health is honored to continue her legacy by matching donations to the fund. Together, we will ensure that Dr. Shadowen’s passion for research and education continues for generations to come.”
Every donation, large or small, will have an impact. To donate to the Rebecca D. Shadowen Research and Education Fund, please visit http://www.chfbg.org/the-dr-rebecca-shadowen-research-and-education-fund/ or call Med Center Health Foundation at 270-796-6519.
