Lacey E. Wyatt, M.D., Legacy Medical Student Scholarship
To combat the negative impact Proposition 209 has had for nearly two decades on the recruitment of underrepresented medical students, The Wyatt Family, and the UCLA/Charles Drew University Chapter of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) at the David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM) has partnered with the UCLA Black Alumni Association (UBAA) and engaged the Dean’s office, the financial aid office, alumni, faculty and the community to establish The Lacey E. Wyatt, M.D. MPH, Legacy Medical Student Scholarship.
The late Lacey E. Wyatt, M.D., MPH was a leader at UCLA in medical education, a treasured mentor to trainees and junior faculty, a clinician, devoted mother, daughter and sister working to improve the care of underserved populations in Los Angeles County. Dr Wyatt was Associate Director of the UCLA Family Medicine Residency Program and Associate Clinical Professor of Family Medicine.
The SNMA, UBAA, the DGSOM faculty and students and the Wyatt Family have united to build an endowed scholarship in Dr Wyatt’s honor. Her legacy of a caring, supportive and diverse academic community is embodied in this scholarship.
