Patients chose to honor Dr. Naibert, a retired family physician, by establishing the scholarship in his name for area students.
“Since the initial award in 2008, $12,000 has been awarded to very bright and promising students, some now having finished their own professional training,” said Dr. Naibert, who practiced at The Clinic’s Waverly Drive office in Albany and at its Immediate Care Center. “One, for example, is a physical therapist, who is now on the application committee to determine the next awardees. It is a real honor to be part of this, and to meet the students who will be helping to take care of me in future years.”
