We have lost a loved and cherished leader in our learning communities, Dr. Louse Arnold, who passed away on December 17, 2020. She made numerous contributions to education and she mentored many in her long career at the UKMC School of Medicine. She will be missed by all of us who were touched by her kind soul. Dr. Arnold is truly one of those people you only meet once in a lifetime. We wish her and her family peace.
With Hearfelt Sympathy,
The Learning Communities Institute Leadership
