Sixth-year medical student Loreley Robie was recently honored as one of the recipients of the 2016 UMKC Women’s Council Graduate Assistance Fund awards.
The awards are given to UMKC women students in post-baccalaureate approved programs. They are used to assist students in completing requirements for graduation and first professional degrees, facilitate studies beyond the classroom, and to enrich and encourage educational experiences.
Robie is using her award to help complete a research project at the School of Medicine, “The use of oral clarithromycin in the prevention and treatment of recurrent chalazia in children.” She was recommended for the award by Rebecca Pauly, M.D., docent and professor of medicine; and Steven Couch, M.D., ’06, a St. Louis ophthalmologist.
Recipients of this year’s awards were formally recognized during a reception by the Women’s Council.
