The Sister Alice Potts Endowed Lecture Series in Pastoral Education was established by an anonymous donor as a fitting tribute to Sister Alice Potts, who served MD Anderson patients for nearly 30 years.
Sister Alice Potts was one of the most experienced chaplains in the department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Education. In the surgical and medical intensive care units, she ministered to people of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, faiths and religious affiliations.
Sister Alice used her gifts in education by training volunteers to approach and empower patients and their families. She also hosted many support groups inside and outside MD Anderson.
On October 21, 2014, the ninth annual Sister Alice Potts Lecture was delivered by G. Scott Morris, M.D., the founder and chief executive officer of the Church Health Center in Memphis, Tenn. He is also a board certified family practice physician and an ordained United Methodist minister.
Dr. Morris’ lecture honored the memory and spirit of Sister Alice by highlighting the importance of the relationship between faith and health care.
You can establish a lecture series for a minimum of $100,000.
