"This STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) scholarship will allow the foundation to give back to the community in the name and legacy of Dr. Wedel to support the advancement of air medical transportation through professional education and research."

"Suzanne was a beloved friend, skilled physician, and tremendous leader who will be missed by many," added Eaton. "Her legacy, vision and commitment will have an ever-lasting effect on this world."
