About the Buchanan Lecture

The Buchanan Lecture was established in 1990 to honor the memory of James Robert Buchanan, MD (Buck). Buck had achieved the rank of associate professor in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and became an internationally respected investigator in calcium endocrinology and metabolic bone disease by the time his short career ended.

The Buchanan Lecture

Dr. Buchanan was a graduate of Swarthmore College and The College of Medicine of the University of Maryland. After completing his orthopaedic residency here at Penn State, he joined the orthopaedic faculty. His active clinical practice combined general orthopaedics and hand surgery. In the laboratory, he applied an interest in vitamin D metabolism to the problem of postmenopausal osteoporosis. His pioneering work in this field earned him several research grants and invited lectureships throughout this country and abroad. Buck was a true renaissance man. Interest in any subject seemed to lead inevitably to expertise. He was simultaneously a clinician, a teacher, an authority on the world’s finest restaurants, a wine connoisseur, a professional level pianist, a brilliant wit, and to those who knew him, a valued husband, father and friend.

Audience

This program is designed for physicians, PhDs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and residents.
