Allen I White Lecture
April 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Bill Smith, Ph.D., B.S. Pharmacy, Senior Director, Drug Metabolism at Gilead Sciences will present a guest lecture.
Dr. Allen I. White served on the pharmacy faculty for 39 years and was Dean of the College of Pharmacy from 1960 to 1979.
The Allen I. White Lectureship was established on Feb. 12, 1979, by College of Pharmacy Professors Charles Martin and Vishnu Batia as a tribute to Dean Allen White. The two professors wanted to do something to honor Dr. White upon his retirement in 1979. Dr. White did not want a banquet or a scholarship, and suggested the lectureship. The purpose of the lecture is to discuss the scientific, social or political aspects of pharmacy or related matters. The first lecture was held April 29, 1981. Speakers are chosen to reflect Dr. White’s professional philosophy: effective leadership does not simply accept change, but views it as an ongoing professional challenge to be grasped and shaped to meet the needs of society.
A reception in the SPBS Lobby will immediately follow the lecture.
