Rose Lynne Schwartz and Richard Schwartz, MD

Rose served more than 5,400 hours as a volunteer for the Auxiliary of Inova Fairfax Medical Campus’ over a 26-year span. As a cancer survivor, she had an irrepressible desire to give back to others for the tremendous care she had received. Dr. Schwartz faithfully served as a pediatrician at Inova, was a professor at the Inova-VCU School of Medicine and was a prolific researcher and writer contributing to nearly 350 published peer-reviewed articles. Rose and Dr. Schwartz passed away within months of each other in 2017, yet their legacy of giving to improve the health of their community continues to inspire many today.
