Continuing the legacy of Dr. Shadowen’s commitment to outstanding healthcare in our community

DonateThe Rebecca D. Shadowen Research and Education Fund has been established to carry out Dr. Shadowen’s legacy in this community. 

Dr. Shadowen enjoyed helping patients with their health problems and working with the doctors, nurses, and staff of the hospitals in Bowling Green and the surrounding counties in Southcentral Kentucky. She enjoyed helping teach medical students and residents of The Medical Center at Bowling Green and helping them with various research projects.

She was elected to fellowship in the Society of Hospital Epidemiologist of America and the American College of Physicians. In 2011, she was awarded “outstanding woman of achievement in health and science” by the Bowling Green Human Rights Commission.

Dr. Shadowen shared the words below in one of her last written communications to the providers.  She will be greatly missed.
