Herbert Lourie Memorial Lecture on Health Policy

About the Lourie Lecture 

The Herbert Lourie Memorial Lecture is jointly sponsored by Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the Central New York Community Foundation, Inc., and is administered by the Center for Policy Research.

Herbert Lourie, MD, was a distinguished member of the national and international medical communities in the field of neurosurgery, as well as a physician who understood medicine as a high calling that demands the utmost of skill, intellect, compassion and character. With his untimely death in 1987, our community lost a beloved healer, teacher, and leader. A generous outpouring of money by his many friends, patients, colleagues, and family funds this lecture series on health care policy and the allocation of health care resources.

The 2016 Herbert Lourie Memorial Lecture on Health Policy was held on Thursday, October 13 from 4:00-5:30pm in the Dr. Paul and Natalie Strasser Legacy Room, 220 Eggers Hall. This year's speaker was Dr. Daniel Webster, Director, Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research/Professor of Health Policy and Management at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. For more information about Dr. Webster, click here.
