Katherine Boucot Sturgis Lecturers

The Katharine Boucot Sturgis (KBS) Lectureship provides a forum for nationally recognized leaders to explore key issues and highlight innovations in health promotion and disease prevention. Past recipients of this lectureship have included Jonas Salk, Phil Lee, David Satcher, David Kessler, John Eisenberg, Kenneth Cooper, David Eddy, Michael McGinnis, and tobacco-control specialist Ron Davis.

The ACPM Board of Regents established the KBS Lectureship in 1979 to recognize Dr. Sturgis' outstanding contributions in research, teaching, and service in the field of preventive medicine; her courageous and effective fight against disease and disability; and her wisdom and leadership in attaining preventive medicine goals. Dr. Sturgis was a pioneer in preventive medicine as the chair of preventive medicine at the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania.
