In the summer of 2018, Dr. Sommer’s generous bequest helped establish this fund, which provides investment to medical students to cover costs of setting up new Walk with a Future Doc Chapters at their medical school.
A pioneer and internationally‐renowned figure in the field of dysmorphology, Dr. Sommer was also a beloved leader, friend, and steadfast presence at Walk with a Doc. For over a decade, she led well more than 60 Walks, took 1000s of pictures, and when no longer able to attend Walks, herself, was visited hundreds of times by her Walk family. WWAD is proud to honor her legacy by naming this inspirational program to commemorate her passion.
Help WWAD expand its reach to budding young medical students—our nation’s future doctors. Make a gift today to the Sommer Scholarship Fund.
