McGann Women and Health Lecture Series

Professor Leona McGann was the faculty sponsor for this series since its inception in 1978. When she retired in 1985, these lectures were named in her honor in gratitude for her support. We also remember long time McGann series supporter, community leader and advocate for women in medicine, Alice Frayne.

Sponsored by Stanford Primary and Population Health. Directed by Dr. Eva Weinlander, MD.

Special thank you to our current Stanford supporters: The Department of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity
