The Robert R. Huntley, MD Lecture’s mission is to raise awareness of research and innovation in family medicine and primary care in the US. The lecture serves as an educational resource for physicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, patients, and community members interested in improving health care. Working with others across the U.S., the UNC Department of Family Medicine’s mission is to help transform the nation’s health care system to be more patient-centered, efficient and effective with dramatically improved quality and lower costs for all.
