Since 1984, the McGovern Lecture Series has been made possible through the generosity of internationally-regarded pediatric allergist, Dr. John P. McGovern. Dr. McGovern’s friendship with our department’s founder, Dr. Warren Schaller, led to a continuing legacy of financial support to us over the years.

Past recipients of this honor have included:

  • Dr. C. Everett Koop, former Surgeon General
  • Dr. Henry Heimlich, medical innovator
  • Mr. Robert Bazell, NBC science correspondent
  • Graham Kerr, television’s “Galloping Gourmet”

The 2019-20 McGovern Lecturer is Dr. James H. Price. Dr. Place will be presenting on “Firearm Violence in the United States: Prevalence, Practices, Perceptions, and Solutions” on September 26, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the Ball State University L.A. Pittenger Student Center, Ballroom.
