J. Warren Perry Lecture Fund

The School of Public Health and Health Professions hosts the annual J. Warren Perry Lecture.

An annual lecture brings nationally recognized experts in health professions to UB through the support of this fund.

A prolific and accomplished scholar, administrator, author and lecturer, J. Warren Perry was founding dean of the University at Buffalo School of Health Related Professions (now the School of Public Health and Health Professions). He established this fund, along with his brother Dr. Charles D. Perry, to support an annual lecture at the school. The presenter of the lecture is typically someone of national stature and/or distinction in at least one significant area of interest to the allied health professions.

Perry came to UB in 1966 to found the School of Health Related Professions, a model for similar schools throughout the SUNY system, and was the first allied health professional ever elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. He died in 2010.

Past Perry lecturers include Kathryn H. Schmitz, PhD, MPH, FACSM; Geoffrey T. Fong, PhD, FRSC, FCAHS; Russell R. Pate, PhD; and Sandro Galea, MD, MPH, DrPH.
