Stephanie Van Dyke was truly one of a kind. She was funny, kind, compassionate, creative, smart, an incredibly hard worker, and so much more. She was always up for an adventure, and never shied away from a challenge.

After graduating from Whitman College, her travels carried her across the world where she quickly recognized the extent of people in need. Realizing this was something she couldn’t ignore, she set out to find a solution. Only a few years later, and with invaluable support, she made her vision a reality and the Engeye Health Clinic of Uganda broke ground.

Later, while completing her medical residency she discovered a need much closer to home. Steph knew that medicine was her most powerful tool, so she decided to continue beyond her M.D., and after obtaining her M.P.H. from Johns Hopkins University, she co-founded The Sky Lakes Wellness Center in Klamath Falls, Oregon.

Stephanie's life was cut short all too soon, but her passion, kindness, and determination to make the world a better place, can live on through all of us.

Please use this website to learn more about her life, share memories and continue her path towards bettering our world – because this is what she would want us to do.
