'Clyburn has a proven record of public health advocacy'
The University of South Carolina’s Arnold School named the lecture series for Clyburn because his service to people in the Palmetto State and his leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives have been critical in improving public health.
“Representative Clyburn has a proven record of advocacy for public health issues vital to the health and well-being of children, adults and senior citizens throughout our state and nation,” Glover said.
Speakers for the program also will include Dr. Henry N. Tisdale, Claflin University president, University of South Carolina President Harris Pastides and Dr. Tom Chandler, Arnold School dean.
Partners for the lecture include the Arnold School of Public Health and the S.C. Partnership to Fight Chronic Diseases.
