Dr. Keith Humphreys will deliver the 31st Annual Herbert Lourie Memorial Lecture on Health Policy. This year’s lecture will focus on the marijuana legalization movement, which states are getting it right and wrong, and what the research says about the implications of legalization for public health.
Dr. Humphreys is the Esther Ting Memorial Professor at Stanford University and a Senior Research Career Scientist at the VA Health Services Research Center in Palo Alto. His research addresses the prevention and treatment of addictive disorders, the formation of public policy about addiction and mental health, and transfer of knowledge from clinical trials into clinical practice.
The Herbert Lourie Memorial Lecture is jointly sponsored by Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the Central New York Community Foundation, Inc., and is administered by the Center for Policy Research.
Herbert Lourie, MD, was a distinguished member of the national and international medical communities in the field of neurosurgery, as well as a physician who understood medicine as a high calling that demands the utmost of skill, intellect, compassion and character. With his untimely death in 1987, our community lost a beloved healer, teacher, and leader. A generous outpouring of money by his many friends, patients, colleagues, and family funds this lecture series on health care policy and the allocation of health care resources.
