Memorial Lectureship for Richard B. Horenstein, MD

Richard B. Horenstein, MD, JD, Memorial Lectureship A Project of School of Medicine Tributes - Honor and Memorial Gifts

The Richard B. Horenstein, MD, JD Memorial Lectureship in the Department of Medicine Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Nutrition has been established in memory of Dr. Richard B. Horenstein, associate professor of medicine. Dr. Horenstein had an intellectual hunger for learning, and carried this passion into all aspects of his life and work. He was collegial, collaborative, compassionate, and a true "Renaissance Man."

Dr. Horenstein was a cornerstone in many clinical translational research projects at the University of Maryland and a gracious collaborator whose intention was always in interest of his patients and the public, and not his own. Colleagues and patients have described him as being "truly one of the kindest people they have ever met." His enthusiasm, positivity and love of life were infectious and all he touched were enriched by his presence. This lectureship seeks to recognize leading physicians and researchers who emulate these qualities.

Dr. Horenstein came to the University of Maryland in 2001 as a fellow in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Nutrition and joined the full-time faculty in the Department of Medicine in 2004. He passed away in 2017 after battling kidney cancer.

The lectureship was established by gifts from the Horenstein Family, co-workers, and friends. Lectureships bring distinguished physicians and researchers to the School of Medicine to share their experience, expertise, and findings with students and faculty.

We hope that this lecture will instill in trainees the passion for life-long learning that Dr. Horenstein held so deeply and provide lively forums for expanding boundaries in those already established in their careers.
