Donald T. Moore, MD, Endowed Lectures by Drs. Foster & Sullivan
October 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Duke Ob/Gyn is proud to present the inaugural Donald T. Moore, MD, Endowed Lecture honoring the legacy of the esteemed physician, educator and community leader. The goal of the Moore Lectureship is to bring to Duke and Durham nationally recognized experts on such topics as health care disparities, societal issues related to access to care, and the economics and politics of health care. Following the evolving desegregation of Duke Hospital, Dr. Moore had a tremendous impact as the first African American Fellow in the School of Medicine when he was asked to join the Department of Ob/Gyn at the invitation of Chairman Roy T. Parker, MD. He also served as Chief of Ob/Gyn at Lincoln Hospital, which later became Lincoln Community Health Center, and trained many Duke residents, medical students, and nurses. His teaching role continued at Durham Regional Hospital, now Duke Regional Hospital, and Duke Hospital.
