New Entry to Radiation Oncology honors late KU professor

The new entryway was made possible through a gift Woodyard made to LMH Endowment Association in memory of her late husband, George W. Woodyard, a Kansas University professor of Spanish from 1966-2005 who also was the first dean of International Studies from 1989-1996.

Eleanor Woodyard became aware of the need for a vestibule when she accompanied her husband to radiation oncology appointments. She thought her gift would help ensure that patients in the radiation oncology waiting room would be more comfortable.

Friends of the Woodyards, as well as physicians, LMH employees and cancer survivors, attended a dedication ceremony of the new vestibule, which was held June 17.
