You’re Invited! Join us for the annual Lefeber Hughes Winter Series on Aging, five weekly lectures offered in person at UTMB and online.
Now in its 28th year, the series honors Dr. Edward James Lefeber and his daughter, Dr. Nancy Lefeber Hughes. Edward Lefeber was a UTMB professor of Medicine who was a strong proponent of eldercare and the study of aging at a time when few doctors were
prepared to care for older patients. His daughter followed in her father’s footsteps to become a physician who was well-known in the Galveston area for her compassionate care and dedication to her patients.
The community is invited each Tuesday for five weekly lectures. Each speaker will present a lecture on an important aspect of aging research. The lecture series is open to the general public and attracts a number of older adults and healthcare providers
from the Galveston community, in addition to UTMB scientists and providers. All lectures will be held from 5:00 - 6:00 PM in the UTMB Health Education Center in Galveston (and online). Reception to follow for those in person.
