Christopher Wadsworth, a VCU School of Dentistry faculty member, suffered from multiple sclerosis, which limited his mobility and sight. Nevertheless, his thoughtfulness, honesty, sincerity and courage enabled him to battle the disease with dignity. Wadsworth also continued to contribute to his school.
Dr. and Mrs. Morton Wadsworth established the fund in 1985 in memory of their son. It grants emergency loans to dental students in critical financial need.
