The Pauls Stradiņš Museum of the History of Medicine is proud to congratulate one of its supporters, Dr Linda Sosāre, for receiving the title of volunteer of the year in the “Gold Dust 2015” awards from the Latvian Association of Museums. Dr Sosāre has supported the Stradiņš museum for years, and during the past year she has been particularly active as a volunteer.
Dr Sosāre came up with the idea for the “Where the Sun Does Not Shine” exhibition, and she helped to find financing for it. She also proposed the restoration of historical dioramas that were created by Dr Pauls Stradiņš, and once again she helped to find financing. Over the course of the years, Dr Sosāre has presented the museum with very valuable objects for its collection. She is an active member of the Latvian Association of Medical Historians.
