Ken Shine Health Lectureship
The Ken Shine Health Lectureship features the winner of the Ken Shine Prize in Health Leadership, awarded to a person who has made significant leadership advancements in health.
The annual prize and lecture are made possible by the Kenneth I. Shine, M.D., Excellence Fund in Health Leadership, endowed in 2016 in honor of the former executive vice chancellor for health affairs of The University of Texas System.
As the result of a partnership between the university and the Estate of Seymour Lipton, awardees receive a small bronze reproduction of Seymour Lipton’s sculpture Pioneer. The original full-scale sculpture is exhibited at the Health Learning Building on Dell Med’s campus.
