Langsams Establish Chair at Health Sciences Center


Establishment of the Herbert and Dorothy Langsam Endowed Centennial Chair in Geriatric Pharmacy at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center's College of Pharmacy has been made possible by a $500,000 signal gift from the Oklahoma City couple.

The university will request matching funds from the Oklahoma State Regents Endowed program.

"The Langsam Chair will have a tremendous impact on the college's efforts to become a national leader in the geriatric pharmacy area. Herb and Dorothy Langsam's generosity, in personal time and resources, is above reproach," said Dr. Jay Stein, OU Health Sciences Center's senior vice president and provost.

Herbert Langsam is a 1952 graduate of the OU College of Pharmacy. Dorothy Langsam is also an OU graduate. . . Dr. Carole A. Sullivan has been named dean of the OU College of Allied Health. She replaces Dr. Lee Holder, whose retirement from the post was effective Tuesday.

Sullivan previously served as both associate dean for the college and as chairman for its Department of Radiologic Technology.

Sullivan joined the OU Health Sciences Center in 1973 as an associate professor of radiologic technology. She was named chairman of the department in 1981, and associate dean of the college in 1990.

Holder will now hold the title of dean emeritus and will continue as a faculty member following a six-month leave of absence. He joined the OU Health Sciences Center in 1982 as dean of the College of Allied Health, professor of allied health education and adjunct professor in the Department of Communication Disorders and in the Department of Health Administration, located in the College of Public Health. He was named chairman of the Department of Allied Health Education in 1988.

The College of Allied Health is located on the OU Health Sciences Center campus in Oklahoma City. It is comprised of the Division of Rehabilitation Sciences, including the departments of physical therapy and occupational therapy, plus the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, the Department of Nutritional Sciences, the Department of Radiologic Technology and the Department of Medical Library Sciences. . . The Founders of Doctors' Hospital Endowed Chair in Family Medicine at the OU College of Medicine-Tulsa has been approved by the OU Board of Regents.

The endowed chair is being created through a $1 million endowment given Nov. 30 by Founders of Doctors' Hospital Inc. It will be matched by $1 million in state funds to create a $2 million endowment for the department. . . Paul Forte' Jr., affirmative action officer for the OU Health Sciences Center, has been elected president of the Alliance for Affirmative Action.

The organization was formed for the purpose of assisting and supporting affirmative action and equal opportunity personnel in identifying recruitment sources; serving as a network for professional information and development in these areas; disseminating information to schools, organizations and agencies; and advocating progress in the area of equal opportunity. …
