Duke Endows Lectureship in Honor of Donald T. Moore, M.D. ’54

A lectureship in honor of Meharry graduate and resident Donald T. Moore, M.D. ’54, will be endowed at Duke University School of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, according to Duke professor and department chair Matthew D. Barber, M.D., MHS.

The permanently established Donald T. Moore Endowed Lectureship will “honor the legacy of Dr. Moore, the first African American Fellow at the Duke School of Medicine, dedicated educator, mentor, surgeon and advocate for the minority women of Durham and our local community,” Dr. Barber said in a letter announcing the lectureship. Lecture topics, to be delivered by nationally recognized experts, will include “health care disparities, societal issues related to access to care, and the economics and politics of health care.” Plans for the inaugural lecture are underway, Barber said.
