Residents Will Travel on
"The Pathology-Time Continuum"
at the Second Annual Michele D. Raible Lecture
ASCP is pleased to announce the second-ever Michele D. Raible Lecture for Residents at the 2012 ASCP Annual Meeting in Boston. The lecture honors Dr. Raible's commitment to delivering superior medical education and creating impact on the lives of medical students.
Robert Folberg, MD, FASCP, Founding Dean, Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, will deliver this year's lecture, entitled "The Pathology-Time Continuum." Dr. Folberg will share his perspective on the evolution of pathology and the impact it will continue to have on patients as we uncover new possibilities for laboratory medicine.
Prior to guiding the launch of the Beaumont Health System, Dr. Folberg served as head of pathology at the University of Illinois-Chicago. He spent 20 years studying the biology of uveal melanoma with funding from the National Institute of Health. The author of more than 200 articles and book chapters, Dr. Folberg is board-certified in anatomic pathology and ophthalmology and one of the leading voices in clinical pathology and laboratory medicine.
As Dr. Raible's former colleague, he makes an ideal match for this year's presentation. Before she passed away in June 2010, the two worked together at UIC for eight years and again at Oakland University when she served on the new school's leadership team.
"It is a privilege for me to honor Michele's memory at the fall meeting of the ASCP," he says. "The lecture will cover a range of issues that will be central to the continuing development of tomorrow's leaders in patient care."
The lecture will also include a special guest who truly understands the passion and dedication Michele had for medical education. Dr. William Miles, Dr. Raible's surviving husband, will join Dr. Folberg for this empowering learning opportunity.
The Michele D. Raible Lecture for Residents is slated for Friday, November 2. For more on the educational sessions and networking events for residents, visit the official ASCP Annual Meeting site.
