Pekar-Abell Award

Pekar-Abell Award A Project of School of Medicine Scholarships

The Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science (PTRS) develops physical therapist practitioners and scholars to restore physical function and performance, prevent physical injury and disease and promote physical wellness. The Pekar-Abell Award was established by Tami Radov, '93, in memory of Alex Pekar and Damon Abell, two young men who benefited greatly from physical therapy. Tami received her physical therapy education from PTRS and has worked as a physical therapist within the Prince George's County Public Schools for more than 20 years. She is immensely grateful for the impact and difference pediatric physical therapists have on the lives of children.

This memorial scholarship honors Alex and Damon by recognizing a third-year student with a strong commitment to pediatric physical therapy.
