The Luminaries in Medicine lecture series was initiated by the University of South
Carolina School of Medicine Greenville in August 2012 to bring the local Greenville
medical community into closer dialogue with the most influential voices in healthcare
and medicine. As we collectively imagine the transformation of health care delivery
in the Upstate Region, we welcome all of our health care students and practitioners,
local leaders and members of the general community to join in the conversation through
interaction with our speakers.
