Baum to receive 2020 Distinguished Service Award

M. Carolyn Baum, PhD, OTR, FAOTA, will be honored with the 2020 Distinguished Service Award from the Washington University Medical Center Alumni Association. The award is given for a particularly laudable career accomplishment with substantial contribution and/or service to Washington University Medical Center. Baum is being recognized for her 43 years of service to Washington University and her 31-year tenure as Elias Michael Executive Director of the Program in Occupational Therapy. She was nominated by her successor, Lisa Tabor Connor, PhD, MSOT, OTR/L. The award was to be presented in spring 2020, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, the ceremony has been postponed until a time it is safe to present this high honor to Baum in person.
