The Sherwood B. Winslow Distinguished Lectureship

Community Health Education

The mission of this initiative is to foster education among healthcare leaders in Calhoun County. This initiative intends to strengthen healthcare understanding, which will lead to enhanced healthcare decision making for the community.

Norman Williamson, Jr. the grandson of W.K. Kellogg, created a special endowed fund for this purpose and named it after his friend, Sherwood B. Winslow. Winslow was a prominent physician in Battle Creek and the Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Leila Y. Post Montgomery Hospital. Since 1988, a well-respected speaker has been invited to Battle Creek every year to speak to physicians, allied health professionals, community members and family members of Dr. Sherwood B. Winslow and educate about healthcare.

Now, this initiative functions in partnership with the Western Michigan University Homer Stryker MD School of Medicine (WMed) and the Calhoun County Medical Society to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits to a larger audience of healthcare professionals.
