Dr. Guess

Since 2008, the UNC International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology chapter has sponsored the Harry Guess Memorial Lecture. This lecture series was conceived of by UNC students to honor Dr. Guess, a man who built the pharmacoepidemiology program here, to remember his outstanding dedication to teaching and mentoring. We hope that this lecture series continues to be a moment where we can pay tribute to our roots as a program and Dr. Guess’ unique and lasting contribution.
