The AAWR would like to express their sincere gratitude to the Higginbotham family for their very generous donation in memory of Edith A. Higginbotham, MD, MS. This endowment will be used for the Member-in-Training Luncheon at RSNA which will now be called the AAWR Higginbotham Resident Lunch. This generous contribution will undoubtedly benefit residents for years to come.

Dr Higginbotham received undergraduate, graduate, and medical degrees from Howard University in Washington D.C.  She did her training at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center in New York City and was one of the first African-American female radiologists board-certified in nuclear medicine in the United States.

Dr Higginbotham practiced in New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, Minnesota, South Dakota and California.
