Gillette Children's Rehabilitation Medicine Physician (PM&R), Linda Krach, MD, says she’d humbled to receive a prestigious lifetime achievement award for her work as an educator, advocate and skilled provider for patients diagnosed with spina bifida and cerebral palsy.

In her remarks when she accepted the Gabriella E. Molnar-Swaffort Pediatric PM&R Lifetime Achievement Award, Krach said she’s thankful for the commitment and mission at Gillette because it helped encourage her in her long career. Krach also thanked the patients and families she had the privilege to work with. “They have taught me so much, not just about rehabilitation,” Krach said, “but also about life and resilience.

Krach’s colleague, physical medicine & rehabilitation physician, Nanette Aldahondo, MD, wrote a letter in support of Krach’s nomination for the Molnar-Swaffort Lifetime Achievement Award. In the letter, Aldahondo calls Krach “one of the pioneers and unsung heroes of pediatric rehabilitation medicine.”

Aldahondo adds, “Dr. Linda Krach epitomizes leadership in research, advancing clinical care, and education.”
