William G. Powderly, MD, was installed as the Larry J. Shapiro Director of the Institute for Public Health during a ceremony on September 27, 2017 at the Eric P. Newman Education Center. Dr. Powderly is also the Dr. J. William Campbell Professor of Medicine and co-director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at the School of Medicine.
The installation ceremony included presentations by Larry J. Shapiro, former executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine; Steve Lipstein, chief executive officer of BJC HealthCare; and Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton.
The directorship was named through the generosity of St. Louis-based BJC HealthCare, which has an enduring relationship with the university. Washington University physicians treat patients at Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals, each part of BJC HealthCare.
