Albert Starr, MD, to give annual Mark O. Hatfield Lecture, March 15

 A special presentation by the Marquam Hill Lecture Series.

Co-inventor of the world’s first successful heart valve and winner of the prestigious Lasker Clinical Medical Research Award, Albert Starr, M.D., will be giving this year’s Mark O. Hatfield Lecture. The talk, “The Value of Health–The Argument for Strong Investment in Medical and Scientific Research,” will take place March 15, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. in the OHSU Auditorium.

Dr. Starr led OHSU’s heart surgery program for many years, and his artificial heart valve technology has saved hundreds of thousands of lives. He recently re-joined OHSU to leverage his experience to bolster OHSU’s public and private partnerships in research, education, clinical care and outreach. Public support has advanced his—and OHSU’s—research, and Dr. Starr will examine this dynamic as well as discuss the economic benefits of health and longevity.
