Pediatrician to reflect on career, life during Feb. 16 lecture

Dr. Fadia Abaza, UT alumna and retired pediatrician, will give the Medical Student Council's 10th Annual Litzinger Legacy Lecture Friday, Feb. 16.

She will speak on 'Three Worlds, Three Countries, Endless Lessons' from 5 to 7 p.m. in Health Education Building Room 110 on Health Science Campus.

Abaza received her medical degree from Damascus University Faculty of Medicine and completed a residency in pediatrics at the former Medical College of Ohio. She practiced in Maumee.

The event is an opportunity for a distinguished faculty member or graduate to share her or his reflections on career, service and life with students and other members of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences' community.

Food will be served during Abaza's talk.

The Legacy Lecture series is inspired by the book titled 'The Last Lecture' by Randy Pausch and is named in honor of Amie Litzinger, a 2013 alumna of the UT College of Medicine, who was integral in its formation.
