Featured Event

Dr. Aletha Maybank – KBS Lecturer

Maybank PhotoThe KBS Lectureship is ACPM’s highest honor, providing a forum for nationally recognized leaders to explore key issues and highlight innovations in health promotion and disease prevention.

Past lecturers have included Drs. Jonas Salk, Elizabeth Barrett-Connor, David Satcher, and Ron Davis. The KBS Lectureship was established in 1979 to recognize the contributions of Dr. Katharine Boucot Sturgis as a pioneer in preventive medicine, including serving as chair of preventive medicine at the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, and as the first woman President of ACPM.

It is a great pleasure to announce this year’s KBS Lecturer, Dr. Aletha Maybank. Dr. Maybank has focused her career on the transformation of the medical profession itself: to uncover, recognize, reconcile and reform structural and other forms of racism to a profession that understands, honors and creates health equity. At this inevitable turning point in medicine and society, Dr. Maybank’s work is demonstrating the kind of leadership and understanding of the relationship between public health, clinical medicine and social structures that are hallmarks of preventive medicine.

Dr. Maybank is a board-certified preventive medicine physician and pediatrician. She trained under Dr. Dorothy Lane at the State University of New York (SUNY) and at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health.
