The Lloyd L. and Ilma L. Dowell Family Medicine Fund was established on November 1, 2002, in accordance with the guidelines approved by the Board of Directors of The Ohio State University Foundation, with a gift from Ilma L. Dowell (B.S.Ed., 1933) and made in memory of Lloyd L. Dowell (B.A., 1932; M.D., 1935) of North Canton, Ohio.
All gifts are to be invested by the Foundation, under the rules and regulations adopted by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, with the right to invest and reinvest as occasion dictates.
The annual income shall be used to support the clinical research, teaching, and patient care activities of the Department of Family Medicine, particularly those related to heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Distribution shall be made upon the recommendation of the chairperson of the Department Family Medicine in the College of Medicine and Public Health in consultation with senior vice president for Health Sciences and dean of the College of Medicine and Public Health.
It is the desire of the donor that this fund should benefit the University in perpetuity. If the need for this fund should cease to exist or so diminish as to provide unused income, then another use shall be designated by the Foundation Board in consultation with the senior vice president for Health Sciences and dean of the College of Medicine and Public Health in order to carry out the desire of the donor.
