David W. Cook, M.D.
Chair Sommer Lecture Series
The Sommer Memorial Lectures are made possible by a perpetual trust established by the late Dr. Ernst A. Sommer with United States National Bank of Oregon. Speakers are selected by an Advisory Committee of four physicians and surgeons, and the programs are planned, as Dr. Sommer wished, to deal with the practical problems arising in the general practice of medicine and surgery. The lectures are open, without charge, to all members of the medical profession and to students attending accredited medical schools.
The Sommer Lectures have brought to Portland more than 250 distinguished speakers from the United States and other countries since 1941 when the programs were inaugurated.
The Advisory Committee and the Trustee welcome suggestions from members of the medical profession for subjects and speakers for future programs.
