The Fred T. Foard Jr. Memorial Lecture was established in 1969 by Elsie D. Foard, to honor her late husband who devoted more than a half-century to improving and organizing public health services across the United States.
This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Greg Allgood (MSPH, ESE, ’83), will be giving a talk on ‘Saving Lives with Clean Water.’ Allgood, founder of Procter & Gamble’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program, is now vice president of World Vision Water. An alumnus of the Gillings School and a 2012 recipient of a UNC Distinguished Alumnus Award, he currently is a fellow at UNC’s Global Research Institute and an adjunct faculty member in the Gillings School’s Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering.
