This year marks the 20th anniversary of the IvaDean Lair Scholarship.
Generations of medical students at the University of Cincinnati have one special thing in common—a woman who has worked in the Dean’s Office for more than 50 years, making sure “her kids” were taken care of as they studied to become physicians.
Five decades ago, IvaDean Lair-Adolph began a cycle of caring that has touched thousands of lives. In turn, those students have become caring individuals, physicians, and donors who are touching thousands more and making education possible for new generations at the UC College of Medicine.
The College of Medicine Class of 2003 used its class gift to start the IvaDean Medical Student Scholarship Fund as a tribute to this woman’s profound influence on medical students as an advisor, advocate, and confidante. The scholarship honors IvaDean Lair, registrar of the College of Medicine, and her role as “the person who has contributed the most to making medical school manageable,” according to the medical students she assists.
That's a transformative legacy with no end in sight.
