William W.L Glenn Lecture
The William W. L. Glenn lecture was established in 1989 in honor of Dr. William W. L. Glenn, a pioneer cardiac surgeon who made important contributions to the treatment of congenital and acquired heart disease. Dr. Glenn was active in AHA programs from 1957, and was the spearheading force in the activities of the Council on Cardiovascular Surgery (now the Council on Cardiovascular Surgery and Anesthesia). He was the first surgeon to hold the position of President of the American Heart Association (1970-1971).
