Morgan Eudy, Class of 2022, has been selected as the first William F. Morris, DO Scholarship Recipient.
Dr. Morris was the beloved founding Chair of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine at Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine who lost his battle to cancer shortly after retiring in 2015. Faculty, staff, friends and the Class of 2017 endowed the scholarship in his memory to recognize students who demonstrate academic excellence in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), serve as an OMM TA, and/or demonstrate a willingness and ability to serve others.
“Being selected for the William F. Morris Scholarship is a huge honor, and I am very thankful for the financial support that this brings,” said Eudy. “Osteopathic manipulative medicine was one of the major reasons I applied to osteopathic medical schools and is an element of medical treatment I hope to one day incorporate into my patient care. Having the training and tools to treat the whole patient in a holistic manner was extremely important to me when I was applying to medical school and is what sets apart the osteopathic profession in my mind.”
