Fred T. Foard Jr., MD (1889-1966)

The Fred T. Foard Jr. Memorial Lecture was established in 1969 by Elsie D. Foard, to honor her late husband whose work in public health spanned more than a half-century, much of it with the U.S. Public Health Service.

Hallmarks of Dr. Foard’s tenure included the development and strengthening of organized public health services in Alaska, Hawaii and the Rocky Mountain and Pacific Coast regions. His efforts spurred major improvements in health services for Native Americans and the transfer of the Indian Health Program from the U.S. Department of the Interior to the U.S. Public Health Service.

After retiring from the Public Health Service in 1952, Dr. Foard served until 1964 as director of the Division of Epidemiology for the N.C. Board of Health. Dr. Foard received an honorary degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1962.
