Introducing the Dr. Linda Spooner, JD., MD., Resilience Scholarship (LSRS) Grant Award! Our beloved Dr. Linda Spooner (March 31, 1950 - July 12, 2018), Executive Officer Board Vice Chair was the epitome of resilience. She was a Board-certified Internal Medicine Physician who had a successful career encompassing academic and hospital medicine, private practice and executive leadership in a large health system for more than twenty years.
Dr. Spooner concentrated on leadership development, enhancing resilience, health and wellness coaching. Her wellness coaching interests particularly embrace a wide spectrum - women's health, LGBTQ+ health, nutrition and stress reduction to achieve optimal health. In honor of her extraordinary life and career, we're pleased to launch our first Scholarship Grant program in her memory.
The Linda Spooner, JD., MD., Resilience Scholarship seeks to increase awareness of what resilience means and what an important quality it is to cultivate throughout our lives. The scholarship is intended to award students and adults who have been affected by bullying and who have used resilience to survive, overcome, and thrive.
The scholarship is awarded to individuals who represent the concept and practice of resilience through the examples they set for others. Applicants may utilize resilience to overcome bullying through personal example, education, or leadership development. Candidates may have experienced bullying directly or helped someone else by lending their strength and resilience to someone who needed it.
