The event was held at the Duke South Amphitheater with a virtual option available via Zoom. The event is open to the public. Dr. Carter spoke on elevating reproductive health equity. A panel discussion on combating disparities in maternal health care followed her presentation. ““It was an honor and privilege to deliver the Dr. Donald Moore endowed lecture in the same lecture hall where I sat through my basic science lectures as a medical student, twenty years ago,” said Dr. Carter. “It is not lost on me that I only have access to travel this trail because Dr. Moore, and so many others like him, blazed it.”

Following the desegregation of Duke Hospital, Dr. Moore had a tremendous impact as the first African American fellow in the Duke University School of Medicine.
