Dear THIMA Members and Friends,
As reported in an earlier eBlast, THIMA suffered a great loss with the untimely death of our colleague Marcus Rickman who died in a car accident on October 13.
At the recommendation of the THIMA Foundation, the THIMA Board of Directors has approved the establishment of the THIMA Marcus Rickman Memorial Scholarship.
Even though Marcus was a young HIM professional, he contributed so very much to THIMA, HIM professionals, and the healthcare community. A natural leader and a stellar HIM professional, his career advanced rapidly leading him to positions of responsibility and authority at a young age. He had a particular passion for students and mentoring young professionals.
Marcus was admired, respected, and loved by many. We establish this memorial scholarship to honor Marcus and the many contributions he made to the HIM profession in his short life.
