Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Solomon Carter Fuller, MD
Symposia | Virtual Livestream Events
The Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) is offering a virtual celebration honoring the life and legacy Solomon Carter Fuller, MD, who graduated from BUSM in 1897. The first Black psychiatrist in the country and a renowned neurologist, pathologist and educator, he worked with Dr. Alois Alzheimer and practiced in the Boston area before joining the BUSM faculty in 1919. Upon his retirement from academic medicine in 1933, he was appointed Emeritus Professor of Neurology, and continued in private practice for many years.
The daylong event is sponsored by the BUSM Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, Pathology & Laboratory Medicine; Diversity & Inclusion and Alumni Association Offices; and BU Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. Learn more >
