Miller School Dean Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., to Present the 10th Biennial Gross Lecture
Dean Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., will deliver the 10th Biennial Gross Lecture, "Medical Knowledge in the Information Technology Era," this Thursday at 4 p.m. at Louis Calder Memorial Library, first-floor lobby.
The Ralph H. and Ruth F. Gross Biennial Lecture was established in 1990 by the Louis Calder Memorial Library to commemorate the Ralph H. and Ruth F. Gross Medical Library Endowment. The first Gross lecturer was Emanuel M. Papper, M.D., Ph.D., vice president for medical affairs and dean of the Miller School of Medicine from 1969 - 1981, who spoke on January 10, 1991, in the library's History of Medicine Room. The lecture has been delivered every two years since 1991 by individuals of exceptional accomplishment on the topic of their choosing, and is attended by members of the Gross family.
Information on the Gross Endowment and the first eight lectures can be seen at http://calder.med.miami.edu/gross/. The ninth lecturer was Mary Moore, Ph.D., professor and chair of the medical library and biomedical communications.
