Marshfield Clinic: Nephrologist, researcher awarded Gwen D. Sebold Fellowship for Outstanding Research
MARSHFIELD – A nationally-recognized Marshfield Clinic researcher was awarded the 30th Gwen D. Sebold Fellowship for Outstanding Research.
“I think research is so much more beneficial when you do it for your friends because then you’re doing it because you love them,” Dr. Haws said. “And you want the very best for them.”
The Sebold Fellowship also honors the memory of Sebold’s sister, Gwen Sebold, who joined Marshfield Clinic as a medical stenographer in 1955 and died in July 1974. Fellowship winners receive $5,000 and a memorial plaque presented by Sebold in memory of Gwen.
“It was amazing to read the nomination letters written on your behalf listing your many accomplishments, contributions to research and the dedication to your patients and their families who are affected by this rare and difficult disease,” said Sebold.
