The Lewis H. Wright Memorial Lecture is sponsored annually by the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology (WLM) and honors its namesake who was a pioneer in American anesthesiology. Dr. Wright was committed to enhancing the stature of anesthesiology as a clinical science and as an advanced medical specialty. He was a founding member of the WLM Board of Trustees and later served as its president emeritus. In 1973 the New York State Society of Anesthesiologists endowed this lectureship to honor Dr. Wright, who died the following year.
This year’s distinguished guest is James Bagian M.D., P.E., veteran National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronaut (1980-1995), Director, Center for Health Engineering and Patient Safety, Chief Patient Safety & Systems Innovation Officer and Professor, Department of Industrial and Operations Management and Department of Anesthesiology, University of Michigan.
