The Annual Douglas West Memorial Lecture

The Annual Douglas West Memorial Lecture was endowed by Susie West in memory of her late husband, and in honor of Diane Meier, MD, who cared for him in his final years. The lecture series began in 1997 and has occurred every spring since. Previous speakers have included notable health care professionals such as Dr. Christine Cassel, Dame Cecily Saunders and Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, and authors and journalists such as Anna Quindlen, Gail Sheehy and Amy Berman.
