This year's University Faculty Lecture will be presented by Stephen Gloyd, Associate Chair of the Global Health department, Professor of Global Health and of Health Services, in the School of Public Health. A reception will follow the lecture.
Dr. Gloyd is a family practice physician who has been on the UW faculty since 1986. He has worked for more than 30 years in Africa, Latin America, and Asia as a clinician, researcher, and teacher. He will provide evidence and share personal stories that illustrate the positive impact of global health advances and the pervasive forces that continue to create health inequalities.
Since 1976, this University Faculty Lecture award has honored current or emeriti faculty whose research, scholarship, or art has been widely recognized by their peers and whose achievements have had a substantial impact on their profession, on the research or performance of others, and perhaps on society as a whole. It acknowledges outstanding creativity and scholarship. The recipient delivers the Annual Faculty Lecture to inform the University community about his or her work.
