Janine Martin: Tributes to Dr. Galen Martin

It was my honor to present the Dr. Galen Martin Medical Scholarship at Nevada Union High School on June 2.

Dr. Martin passed away on Nov. 2, 2015 and many of his patients contributed funds for his scholarship. Future donations can be sent directly to Nevada Union High School, attn: Barbara Ross with a note on your check saying, “Dr. Galen Martin Medical Scholarship.” The scholarship was awarded to a pre-med student attending U.C. Berkeley, which is where Galen did his undergraduate work.

A celebration of life for Galen will be at noon on June 18 in Pioneer Park in Nevada City. The event will be a potluck, and guests are encouraged to bring folding chairs. A bench will be dedicated in his honor.
