Event Details

A child of Holocaust survivors, Lilly Marks’ parents couldn’t help with her homework – but they gave her indelible lessons on surviving adversity and shouldering responsibility. From practicing balancing her parents’ checkbook in 5th grade, she would go on to become a member of the Federal Reserve Bank Board of Directors, an author of a key section of the Affordable Care Act, Vice President for Health Affairs at the University of Colorado, and a key player in building today’s thriving Anschutz Medical Campus. Join us for a rare personal conversation about her extraordinary life. This is part of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities conversation series with Jewish women in medicine, presented by the Helen Morris American Jewish Experience in Medicine Program. This is a hybrid event with both an in-person and Zoom option.
