Save the Date: 2020 Thomas S. Inui Lecture
We are pleased to announce that Maureen Connelly, MD, MPH, founding Senior Associate Dean for Academic and Community Affairs at Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, will deliver this year’s Thomas S. Inui Lecture. The lecture will take place Tuesday, April 28 at 10:30 am at Harvard Medical School’s Benjamin Waterhouse Room, located in Gordon Hall.
Dr. Connelly’s role as founding Senior Associate Dean for Academic and Community Affairs at Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine places her on a leadership team charged with oversight of the School's planning, design, and implementation. Prior to joining Kaiser, Dr. Connelly was a women’s health clinician and researcher, and served 25 years at Harvard Medical School, with an academic appointment here at the Department of Population Medicine, where she remains a visiting professor. She made great strides in the area of faculty development in the HMS Office for Faculty Affairs for 13 years, eight of which she served as Dean for Faculty Affairs.
Dr. Connelly cites her interest in women’s careers and academic advancement for faculty as her motivation to pursue administrative leadership roles, with the goal of contributing to the national conversation about faculty affairs and faculty development through service, national leadership, and scholarship. Among her many accolades, Dr. Connelly holds a special place in DPM history as the first fellow to receive the Thomas O. Pyle Fellowship in 1998. We look forward to welcoming her back to the Institute to deliver the annual Inui lecture.
The Thomas S. Inui Lecture is an annual event established in 2000 and named for the founding Chair of the Department of Ambulatory Care and Prevention, known today as the Department of Population Medicine. Dr. Inui led the department for eight years until his departure in 2000 and returns to Boston for the lecture each year.
