Dr. Frederick to Deliver Inaugural Tubman Lectureship at West Virginia University
Wayne A.I. Frederick

WASHINGTON (February 10, 2014) - Interim President Wayne A.I. Frederick will deliver the inaugural Harriet Tubman lecture as part of a visiting professorship at West Virginia University, Feb. 18-19.

During the two-day visit, Dr. Frederick will serve as the attending surgeon for the Morbidity and Mortality conference, present at the surgical grand rounds as well as address faculty and students on the topic, “Unconscious Biases in Academic Medicine.”

The visit to the Morgantown campus also coincides with the WVU School of Medicine’s recognition of Black History month. Each February the Department will host "educational programs that focus on health issues that affect populations isolated by race, culture, poverty, gender, and sexual and social identity."

The West Virginia University School of Medicine serves more than 2,500 students with a variety of educational programs -- including medicine, physical and occupational therapy, medical technology, physical therapy, exercise physiology, continuing medical education, and others. Faculty members provide advanced clinical care to more than 100,000 West Virginians throughout the state.
