The Floyd Memorial Fellows Lecture in Endocrinology is named in honor of John C. Floyd, Jr., late Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism and co-founder/former associate director of the Michigan Diabetes Research and Training Center. The lecture was established in 2007 to honor Dr. Floyd’s commitment to post-graduate medical education and to recognize his outstanding dedication to, and service in, the field of endocrinology at the University of Michigan. The lecture brings renowned and respected colleagues in the field to meet with the endocrinology fellows and faculty at U-M. Each year, the speaker for the lecture is chosen by the MEND Fellows, who also issue the speaker invitation, schedule the visit, and coordinate the event.

Since this is also an Internal Medicine Grand Rounds lecture, box lunches and bottled water will be available from 11:45 a.m.-12:10 p.m. (or until gone.) The lunches are provided by the Department of Internal Medicine for Grand Rounds attendees.

Departmental Grand Rounds can be accessed in real time via interactive video over the internet by clicking on this link at the time of the event: https://connect.umms.med.umich.edu/intmedgr
