The Peter P. Lamy Memorial Lecture


The Peter P. Lamy Memorial Lecture is a forum for the presentation of high level research and new developments in the study of aging and related health care issues. It honors Dr. Lamy, a pioneer in geriatric pharmacotherapy who dedicated his life to improving drug therapy for the elderly. In 1978, Dr. Lamy established the Center for the Study of Pharmacy and Therapeutics for the Elderly (CSPTE) at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, a forerunner to the Peter Lamy Center for Drug Therapy and Aging. Lamy was the author of numerous publications, including the landmark text and bestseller Prescribing for the Elderly.
