Annual Lectures

Saxon Graham
There is a great deal of evidence now that diet affects cancer risk. That connection wasn’t obvious, though, in the 1950s, when Buffalo-born researcher L. Saxon Graham began breaking new ground in cancer epidemiology. Over the next half-century, Graham contributed some of the most important research on diet and cancer.
The Saxon Graham Lectureship honors the life and legacy of a man known as one of the fathers of U.S. chronic disease epidemiology.
The 11th Annual Saxon Graham Lecture was presented by Julie Mares, PhD, MSPH, on Friday, March 3, 2017.
 Glen E. Gresham
In the spring of 2011, the School of Public Health and Health Professions hosted its inaugural Glen E. Gresham Visiting Professor in Rehabilitation Science, a position endowed by the late Albert C. Rekate, a veteran UB medical school faculty member, and his wife, Linda.
The 8th annual lecture will be presented by Rory Cooper, PhD.
Richard V. Lee
The School of Public Health and Health Professions has established an annual lectureship to honor Richard V. Lee, MD, MPH, former faculty member at the University at Buffalo (UB).  The annual lecture will focus on aspects of global health.
