Stephanie Smith receives local DAR medical scholarship

Original post made by El Palo Alto Daughters of the American Revolution on Sep 29, 2010

Stephanie Smith, recipient of the Alice W. Rooke Daughters of the American Revolution medical scholarship, was the guest of honor at the El Palo Alto Chapter's September meeting at The Forum in Cupertino. El Palo Alto Chapter sponsored Stephanie in her application for the scholarship.

Stephanie is an accomplished young woman with a very impressive resume.

She grew up in Tracy, CA, graduated from Yale with a bachelor's degree in biology and a master's degree in public health, worked at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, and returned to the Bay Area to attend medical school at Stanford (where she is currently in her second year).


Stephanie's interest in cancer survivorship, support, education, and care has evolved over the years. She has volunteered, participated in research, and found her passion in public health and ultimately medicine. She dedicates her journey into medicine in honor and in memory of those who have influenced and inspired her.
