About the Nicholas J. Pisacano Memorial Lectureship

The purpose of the Nicholas J. Pisacano Memorial Lectureship is to provide opportunities for outstanding scholars to address pertinent and interesting issues of concern to the family physicians and populations served by family physicians. This lectureship is sponsored by the ABFM.

Dr. Nicholas Pisacano was Founder and director of the ABFP. He believed that the welfare of the patient was of utmost importance and that physicians should be broadly educated. He did not accept mediocrity; instead he believed strongly in striving for excellence.
