The Ambrose-Reed Lecture

Dr. Samuel Ambrose was the Southeastern Section president in 1975, and in 1981 became the first chairman of the AUA Public Relations Committee, later to be called the Socioeconomic Committee. Dr. Mason who served as president formed this committee, which later became the Health Policy Council. Dr. Josiah Reed was the Southeastern Section president in 1992, and chairman of the AUA Socioeconomic Committee in 1986. This award honors these two pioneers in the field of health policy.
