The series honors Dr. Edward James Lefeber, 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. The community is invited each Tuesday evening for five weekly lectures. Each speaker presents a lecture on an important aspect of aging research and consults with students, faculty, and staff on research topics, grant applications and articles being written for publication. The lecture series is open to the general public and attracts a number of seniors and healthcare providers from the Galveston community, in addition to UTMB scientists and providers. A reception follows each one-hour lecture.
