Whitney Lectureship Endowment
The Whitney Lectureship is made possible through the very generous support of Fay and Roy Whitney. Fay Whitney, PhD, RN, FAAN, has a long and distinguished career in medical practice, nursing education and research. Her efforts were instrumental in the establishment of Upstate's Nurse Practitioner program in the 1970s and, indeed, to the beginning of the national Nurse Practitioner movement.
The Whitneys established this endowment to provide funding for on-campus visits by nationally renowned health care experts.
