The Consortium for Culture and Medicine
Celebrates 30 Years & Honors Dr. Robert W. Daly
The Syracuse Consortium for the Cultural Foundations of Medicine was founded in 1978 by Dr. Robert Pickett, Syracuse University, Dr. Thomas Ewens from Le Moyne College. and Dr. Robert Daly, SUNY Upstate Medical University (left to right).
The Consortium for Culture and Medicine is a collaborative endeavor between SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse University and Le Moyne College to engage in scholarship related to the cultural foundations of medical theory and practice. It serves a unique function by aligning the three institutions and uniting scholarly exploration across them – moving beyond discipline-specific or profession-centered education to a truly interdisciplinary pursuit of knowledge.
The CCM mission – to advance a cultural and social perspective on medicine, beyond an increasingly technological and economic viewpoint – is only strengthened in our current age of ever-expanding scientific advancement in the face of vast economic restraints.
