About the Series
Each academic semester, the Center for Health Administration Studies (CHAS) sponsors the Michael M. Davis Lecture Series which brings renowned policy experts, researchers and commentators to the University to explore the intersection of health policy and the broad needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged populations. CHAS also provides support for conferences and workshops focused on issues surrounding health services and health policy research.
The career of Michael M. Davis spanned almost fifty years in many areas of medical sociology and health administration. Davis’ early years included the establishment of the first “pay clinics” in the United States in 1913, to meet the needs of the working population of Boston, MA. Davis was also the founder of the University of Chicago Graduate Program of Health Administration Studies in 1934. We are proud to carry on the spirit of his early work with vulnerable populations with this lecture series.
