    At the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Health Professions, we believe the pursuit of knowledge does not end at graduation. Marilyn Gossman was a physical therapist, educator, researcher, and influential leader who also held this belief. Marilyn joined the newly developed physical therapist educational program at UAB in 1967 and soon took over as chair of the program – a position she held for more than 30 years. In 1998, Marilyn died of breast cancer; while she had accomplished so much, she had so much more to give. Her legacy lives on today through the hundreds of students and faculty members whose lives she touched. Her UAB family wishes to continue her legacy of excellence, education and innovation by establishing the Marilyn R. Gossman Endowed Lectureship.

      Marilyn Gossman was a physical therapist, educator, researcher, and influential leader. Marilyn joined the newly developed physical therapist educational program at UAB in 1967 and soon took over as chair of the program – a position she held for more than 30 years. Early on, she recruited her friends, and Case Western Reserve alumni, Jo Clelland and Cara Adams, to join the UAB PT faculty. These three young women, with input from notable others, re-vamped the PT educational curriculum and grew it into the current Department of Physical Therapy that will celebrate it's 50th anniversary in 2014. In 1998, Marilyn died of breast cancer; while she had accomplished so much, she had so much more to give. Her legacy lives on today through the hundreds of students and faculty members whose lives she touched. Her UAB family wishes to continue her legacy of excellence, education and innovation by establishing the Marilyn R. Gossman Endowed Lectureship. This video features Cara Adams, UAB PT professor emeritus, speaking about Marilyn and her impact on students, faculty and the PT profession.
