Lester Lecture

Susan Lester

Susan B. Lester

The family and friends of Susan B. Lester endowed a lectureship in her honor, and it is this generous donation that makes the Markey Cancer Center Research Day possible.

Mrs. Lester left an indelible mark on her world, serving as a clinical dietitian for Eastern State Hospital and for nursing home patients in Eastern and Central Kentucky.

This symposium benchmarks recent advances in cancer research and thus honors Mrs. Lester by underscoring both her generous life and the brave battle she fought against this disease.
