The Crossing Rivers Health Foundation is proud to recognize Chelsea Carlson of McGregor, Iowa as the most recent recipient of the Dr. Roger C. Rademacher Memorial Scholarship for Clinical Excellence. Chelsea recently completed her Nursing Associate Degree from Southwest Wisconsin Technical College, achieving a 4.0 GPA.

Chelsea started her career at Crossing Rivers Health in 2018 as a Certified Medical Assistant at the Crossing Rivers Health Clinic in Prairie du Chien. She recently accepted the position as the Clinic Nursing Coordinator for both the Prairie du Chien and Fennimore clinics.

Carlson is passionate about the outdoors. “Being outdoors is a great way for me to relax after a busy week. I also feel that it helps me to be more creative in other aspects of my life. Whether I’m fishing out on the river with my fiancé or hiking with my two dogs, you’re sure to find me spending my free time enjoying the beautiful nature that surrounds us.”

Carlson shared, “I strive for the health and wellness of my patients. I am rooted in a commitment to provide extraordinary care to make an immediate impact to the patients I serve. I am fortunate to continue working with such a supportive organization. I will be forever grateful for being a recipient of the Dr. Roger C. Rademacher Scholarship.”

Sasha Dull, Chief Development Officer and Director of the Crossing Rivers Health Foundation stated, “The intent of the Dr. Roger C. Rademacher Scholarship is to provide financial support in the form of a grant to select clinical professionals employed at Crossing Rivers Health. Employees who obtain certification or advance their degree in a clinical area are encouraged to apply. We’re honored to invest in the future of healthcare by providing a scholarship in memory of Dr. Rademacher.” Dull added, “Congratulations to Chelsea for achieving her educational goals. We’re very fortunate to have her on our team.”

Countless clinical professionals have benefited from the mentorship of Dr. Roger C. Rademacher, who was killed in a traffic accident in January, 2009. Through his 26 years of practice in Prairie du Chien, Dr. Rademacher leaves an outstanding legacy of integrity, trust, and compassion.
