The McGovern-Tracy and Student Scholars program is named for Isabel McGovern Kerr and Michele Tracy. McGovern Kerr endowed the DFMCH in 1998 to establish scholarships in memory of the McGovern family who pioneered in Wisconsin and were some of its first family physicians. Michele Tracy was a second-year UW medical student who was killed while participating in an educational service program in Malawi, Africa, in July 1999.

Award Program

The McGovern ‐ Tracy and Scholars Awards Ceremony took place on May 9, 2019 at Memorial Union’s Tripp Commons in Madison, WI.
