The Karl E. Stobbe (KES) Lectureship Series was created by the Niagara Regional Campus graduating class of 2011 in honor of the regional assistant dean, Dr. Karl Stobbe in recognition of his contributions to medical education in the region. The spirit of the lectureship aims to bring together healthcare professionals, students, and members of the public from across the Niagara Region to learn about a common health-related topic. The lectureship series is in its sixth year and has covered an array of hot topics such as: diabetes, chronic pain, obesity management, metabolic syndrome, breast cancer, prostate cancer & choosing wisely: evidence based guidelines.
This year the lectureship Series will host two separate talks, one for the public and healthcare learners featuring Dr. Simon Oczkowski, Assistant Professor from the department of Medicine, Critical Care at McMaster University, who will be presenting (title of presentation) to the community on March 4th, 2017.
The second lecture for faculty, alumni, med students and medical professionals will be held on Saturday, June 17th at 12:00pm. The topic is Safe Opioid Prescribing: Safe Practice, Changing Lives presented by Dr. Edwin A. Salsitz, an attending physician at Mt. Sinai Beth Israel, Division of Chemical Dependency, New York City, and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
