Philip R. Nader Legacy of Health Lectureship

The purpose of the annual Philip R. Nader Legacy of Health Lectureship and related events and activities is to promote and inspire academics, providers, public health students and community residents to stimulate the fields of primary prevention and community pediatrics. A future vision for these lectureships is to strengthen the nexus between theory and practice, and cooperation among physician, patient, family, and community. The goal is to move the needle toward an improved health status for both parents and children, by focusing on early lifecycle systems.

The annual Lectureship is hosted by the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at the UTHealth School of Public Health.
