Pomona, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2013

The fifth annual Dr. Philip Pumerantz Distinguished Lectureship at Western University of Health Sciences will feature Louis W. Sullivan, MD, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) as keynote speaker.

The Pumerantz Lecture will take place at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 in Lecture Hall II of WesternU’s Health Education Center, 701 E. Second St., Pomona, Calif. 91766.

As HHS secretary under President George H. W. Bush from 1989 to 1993, Sullivan released Healthy People 2000 (a blueprint for health promotion/disease prevention), waged a vigorous campaign against tobacco use, urged increased seat belt use in vehicles, and improved FDA food labels.

Sullivan is chairman of the board of the National Health Museum in Atlanta, Ga., and is chairman of the Washington, D.C.-based Sullivan Alliance to Transform America’s Health Professions.

He served as chair of the President’s Commission on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from 2002-09, and was co-chair of the President’s Commission on HIV and AIDS from 2001-06.

In 1975, Sullivan became the founding dean and president of Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) serving for more than two decades. He is now President Emeritus.

A native of Atlanta, Sullivan graduated magna cum laude from Morehouse College and earned his medical degree, cum laude, from Boston University School of Medicine. His postgraduate training included an internship and residency in internal medicine at New York Hospital – Cornell Medical Center (1958-60), a clinical fellowship in pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital (1960-61), and a research fellowship in hematology at the Thorndike Memorial Laboratory of Harvard Medical School, Boston City Hospital (1961-63). He is certified in internal medicine and hematology.

He has served on the faculties of Harvard Medical School, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Boston University School of Medicine.

Drs. Daljit and Elaine Sarkaria of Orange established the lectureship in honor of WesternU’s founder and president, Dr. Philip Pumerantz, in 2009 as part of a $5.1 million pledge to WesternU. The Sarkarias dedicated $100,000 of their pledge to create the lectureship to encourage and foster exemplary medical research, education and high-quality patient care.
