Save the Date: 12th Annual Lawrence-Hawkins Symposium

Mark your calendar for the 12th Annual Lawrence-Hawkins Symposium, scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 23 at Palmer Commons.

The Lawrence-Hawkins Symposium was established in 2004 to honor the research legacy of the founding faculty members of the Kresge Hearing Research Institute, Drs. Merle Lawrence and Joseph Hawkins.

The one-day event is devoted to basic science and clinically related presentations by students, fellows and residents of the department and highlighted with a morning presentation by a distinguished alumnus. Department faculty, trainees and alumni are invited to attend.

This year we welcome guest lecturer Kaoru Ogawa, M.D., chair of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan and a KHRI alumnus (1991-1993). Dr. Ogawa will also present an HBCS seminar on Tuesday, Sept. 22. Additional details regarding these events to follow.
