About the Lourie Lecture
The Herbert Lourie Memorial Lecture is jointly sponsored by Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the Central New York Community Foundation, Inc., and is administered by the Center for Policy Research.
Herbert Lourie, MD, was a distinguished member of the national and international medical communities in the field of neurosurgery, as well as a physician who understood medicine as a high calling that demands the utmost of skill, intellect, compassion and character. With his untimely death in 1987, our community lost a beloved healer, teacher, and leader. A generous outpouring of money by his many friends, patients, colleagues, and family funds this lecture series on health care policy and the allocation of health care resources.

Center for Policy Research
The Maxwell School Center for Policy Research (CPR) conducts a broad range of interdisciplinary research and other activities related to public policy, involving graduate students as assistants and junior colleagues. Faculty consult regularly with government agencies and other institutions concerning the issues they are studying.
The Center includes faculty from several departments within the Maxwell School, mainly Economics, Public Administration, and Sociology. This collection of specialists brings a depth of experience and skill to research and offers students a wealth of opportunity for discussion and advice on their own research, as well as the possibility of research assistantships on projects directed by the faculty. The Center provides a base for visiting scholars from the United States and abroad. CPR also publishes working papers and Policy Briefs.
