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 and The Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion and Population Health.
Herbert Lourie, M.D., 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.
