Ridgway legacy fund created to honor commitment to education, mentorship, scholarship and patient care
The American Thyroid Association has launched a very important campaign to honor Dr. E. Chester “Chip” Ridgway, former ATA President, and mentor and friend to so many endocrinologists.
Chip was the founder of the Fellows Conference at the ATA Annual Meeting; and for two decades, he was its champion. Consequently, it is very fitting to name and perpetuate support for this ATA program in memory of Chip, whose career was dedicated to the education and encouragement of future thyroidologists. To honor him the ATA named the hugely successful “E. Chester Ridgway Trainee Conference” at the 84th Annual Meeting in Coronado, California.
Support the ATA E. Chester Ridgway Trainee Conference. This program was near and dear to Chip’s heart. Supporting this campaign to ensure its future will be a wonderful way both to perpetuate his memory and advance the careers of the trainees to which he was so devoted.
