You’re invited: Inaugural Hiss Lecture

September 12, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

All Michigan Medicine faculty and staff are invited to attend the first-ever Roland “Red” Hiss Lecture, sponsored by the Department of Learning Health Sciences.

The lecture — which will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 4 in the MCHC Auditorium — will be given by David G. Marerro, Ph.D., director of the University of Arizona Center for Health Disparities Research. The Center for Health Disparities Research works to develop programs and strategies to improve health and well-being along the U.S.-Mexico border and across the greater southwest.

Marrero’s research has focused on medication adherence, community health programs, early diabetes intervention and translational medicine.

His address is part of the Roland “Red” Hiss Lectureship, established in 2017 to honor Hiss, who was professor and chair of the Department of Medical Education (now the Department of Learning Health Sciences) and director of extramural education at the U-M Medical School.

The annual lectureship invites a leader in medical education to give a lecture and interact with faculty at Michigan Medicine, including faculty of the Medical Education Scholars Program (MESP).

In honor of Hiss’ passion for continuing medical education, the lectureship is intended to share innovations in medical education, provide MESP participants with an opportunity to discuss their work and interests with a national expert, and enable faculty to share advances taking place at Michigan Medicine with the visiting scholars.
