Inaugural Douglas LaBrecque Lectureship in Hepatology

To honor Douglas LaBrecque, MD, and his extraordinary accomplishments, the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the UI Foundation have established the Dr. Douglas R. LaBrecque Lectureship in Hepatology—an initiative that was catalyzed by a generous leadership gift from LaBrecque’s family. Lectureships—whether used to provide recognition and support for outstanding faculty, or to attract other leaders in the field as visiting lecturers to campus—are vital in advancing the education mission at UI Carver College of Medicine. The Dr. Douglas R. LaBrecque Lectureship in Hepatology is an important extension of LaBrecque’s career-long commitment to educating tomorrow’s practitioners about liver disease.
