The Maralynne D. Mitcham Lectureship Fund

In 2005, The Maralynne D. Mitcham Lectureship Fund was established to create, in perpetuity, an annual lectureship program for the Division of Occupational Therapy at the Medical University of South Carolina. The fund’s purpose is to honor the collegial spirit, leadership skills, and mentorship of the late Dr. Mitcham and promote a day of sharing and fellowship for the profession of occupational therapy. More specifically, the lectureship will be awarded each year to a scholar in the field who has a broad perspective on occupation, an international reputation, and one who has made significant contributions to education, practice, and/or research in the field of occupational therapy. Such a scholar will enhance the education of health professionals within the college and community, and provide an opportunity for presentation and dialogue around key intellectual issues of the time, thereby fostering the vision and mission of the University.

Consider helping to keep Dr. Mitcham’s legacy alive through a donation to her Lectureship Fund.
