Honoring Dr. Megan Skedzielewsk Morgan, DPT Class of 2013

Join us in honoring the memory of Megan Skedzielewski Morgan, PT, DPT, a remarkable graduate of Thomas Jefferson University's DPT Class of 2013. Megan was diagnosed with cancer while pursuing her degree and worked extremely hard to graduate, leaving a lasting impact on her classmates, professors, and physical therapy community.

To commemorate her legacy, we're raising $50,000 for a Physical Therapy (PT) Department Endowed Lectureship. This self-sustaining fund will foster PT continuing education and alumni engagement at Jefferson.

Thank you for your consideration and your support.
