The Lawrence Zollicoffer Symposium Fundraiser
The Zollicoffer Lectureship was established in 1981 by members of the UNC chapter of the Student National Medical Association with the support of the Dean of the School of Medicine. It was named in honor of Lawrence Zollicoffer, M.D. (1930-1976), the fourth African American graduate of the UNC School of Medicine and founder of the Garwyn Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The Baltimore community recognized Dr. Zollicoffer as a supporter and activist in the struggle for civil and human rights. Throughout his life, he exemplified qualities which students admire and hope to emulate as future physicians.
