Honors College alumna Dr. Aileen Chang, School of Medicine and Biomedical Science, ’91, MD and School of Medicine and Biomedical Science, ’87, BS in order to pay tribute to her parents, Chen-kuo Chang and Amy Chang, has created The Chen-kuo and Amy Chang Memorial Award for a graduating Honors College senior pursuing a graduate degree in the medical research field, preferably with an oncology focus. The Award is a one-time grant of $1,000 and is non-renewable.
Dr. Chang decided to create this award to honor her parents because they both died of lung cancer at ages 50 and 72 years and neither smoked. Only ongoing medical research can cure similar cancer patients or at least improve their quality of life. She and her parents would be grateful to anyone who could offer their contribution to the cure for cancer.
