Bobbette Ranney, M.D., of Brighton, Colo., was honored with the annual Hal O'Leary Award for developing an adaptive swing that allowed her to participate in golf tournaments for the able-bodied and the disabled. The swing was developed with the help of Marcia Bailey, a Ladies Professional Golf Association coach.

The Hal O'Leary Award recognizes disabled athletes who have contributed to the community. Dr. Ranney was confined to a wheelchair after an automobile accident nearly killed her.

Dr. Ranney serves on the University of Colorado School of Medicine Admissions Committee Board and volunteers at the Monfort Children's Clinic in Greeley, Colo., a facility for indigent children.
