October 10, 2014 | Eck Institute for Global Health
The 2014 Paul P. Weinstein Memorial Lecture presented by the Eck Institute for Global Health featured alumnus Bernard Nahlen, ’75, MD, Deputy Coordinator of the President's Malaria Initiative for USAID of the Bureau of Global Health, Infectious Diseases and Nutrition. Nahlen graduated from Notre Dame in 1975 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in American Studies. He went on to receive a medical degree from the University of Arkansas in Little Rock.
Nahlen is part of the University of Notre Dame’s deep and rich tradition of research and training programs focused on reducing the burden of tropical infectious diseases around the globe. In honor of that tradition, the Eck Institute for Global Health established the Paul P. Weinstein Memorial Lecture to recognize the excellence that Weinstein brought to a life dedicated to advancing research on infectious diseases and training multiple generations of scientists. The 2014 Memorial Lecture featuring Nahlen carried on this tradition.
