Catherine Strader McGehee Memorial Lectureship in Nursing Fund
The McGehee Lecture was endowed in 2002 in memory of Catherine Strader McGehee by the School of Nursing BSN Class of 1975 and McGehee's family and friends. McGehee had received her bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing from U.Va. and was pursuing her PhD when she died in 1999 after a courageous battle with breast cancer. Distinguished speakers are selected for the lecture series who demonstrate McGehee's commitment to excellence in nursing education and practice, her demonstration of exemplary leadership, and her service to the community at large.
