Kayse Shrum, D.O., provost and dean of the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences, will receive the Pinnacle Award in Health from the Mayor’s Commission on the Status of Women and the Tulsa Women’s Foundation at 7 p.m. March 13 at a reception at Gilcrease Museum.

“I am humbled to receive the Pinnacle Award in Health,” said Shrum, a pediatrician and professor of pediatrics. “I consider it a privilege, as dean of the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, to serve our community and the state to improve health care for Oklahomans.”

Pinnacle awards recognize extraordinary commitment by women to enact positive change affecting women and children through their profession, individual leadership or community service.

“My success can be attributed to the many wonderful mentors and colleagues who have inspired me,” said Shrum. “The annual Pinnacle Award in Health is typically awarded to only one person, and I am honored to represent all the dedicated health professionals who make a difference in the lives of Tulsans every day.”

The awards honor six women who are role models in their professions, take risks on behalf of others, perform voluntary community service and demonstrate a commitment to women's issues and concerns. For ticket information, contact Darlene Hall at 918-596-2461 or dhall@cityoftulsa.org, or visit the Pinnacle Awards website at cityoftulsa.org community programs.
