We are deeply saddened to notify the Baylor Community of the passing of Dr. Margaret “Peg” Nosek, who died Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020.
 
Dr. Nosek was the founder and executive director of the Center for Research on Women with Disabilities (CROWD) and tenured full professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Baylor College of Medicine. She was a 1984 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with a doctorate in rehabilitation research. She joined the Baylor department in 1984, and she founded the CROWD in 1993. 

During her 36-year tenure, Dr. Nosek was awarded approximately $16 million dollars in federal and private grant funds for research and training, primarily focused on research designed to improve the lives and well-being of women with disabilities.
 
As a woman with a severe congenital physical disability, Dr. Nosek was an ardent activist in the independent living and disability rights movement.
