2019 JHU Fellow - Dr. Mary Lindmuth

Did you know that 100% of the donations received at PVDA Ride for Life support the Surgical Oncology Fellowship in Breast Surgery at JHU? We are pleased to announce that Dr. Euhus has made the selection for the 2019-20 Breast Surgery Fellow.     Mary K. Lindemuth, M.D., is a current General Surgery Chief Resident at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City.  After graduating from Sewanee: The University of the South in 2008 with a major in Anthropology, the Tulsa native returned to Oklahoma to attend medical school and complete General Surgery residency.  Mary has held numerous leadership positions during residency, including Vice President and, subsequently, President of the OUHSC Resident Council.  In her fourth year of surgical training, Mary was honored as the ‘Outstanding General Surgery Resident of the Year.’  Mary’s research interests include patient outcomes and process improvement.  During a dedicated research year, she completed numerous process improvement projects and conducted extensive research on socioeconomic factors and disparities in care within the Trauma system with her research on “The Paralyzing Effect of Insurance Status on Thoroughfare of Acute Spinal Cord Patients” most recently published.  Mary looks forward to extending her research to breast oncology and is interested in the psychosocial aspects of surgical outcomes.  Mary’s meticulous, inquisitive, and dedicated nature will help her succeed as part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team that shares her desire for continued learning and academic advancement.

Fundraiser Freestyle

Welcome to our Fundraiser Freestyle. The format of the “Fundraiser Freestyle” is a single un-judged class, regardless of level, open to individuals wishing to raise funds for the PVDA Ride for LifeTM. The “Fundraiser Freestyle” is being ridden concurrently, but outside of the Recognized Show. Our riders may have chosen to ride a Musical Freestyle TOC Class, or a USEF or FEI TOC in celebration of someone (e.g. a survivor or in memoriam) or a true “free” style and just for fun! Our riders each made a minimum donation to ride in the class, all of which goes directly to JHU. We require that they wear approved Helmets and while we permit and encourage costumed participation, each rider will keep the safety & well-being of their horse at the top of their list. At conclusion of the “Fundraiser Freestyle” you will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to vote for your favorite horse and rider team via People’s Choice! All proceeds from the People’s Choice will also go to JHU and will be included in the total amount raised by the rider in the Fundraiser Freestyle, and will be the basis for selecting the winners of the class - to three places by Division (Open, Adult Amateur and Jr/Yr).
