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.
