In Memory of
Lewis Wardlaw Haskell Blackman was one of South Carolina's most promising young citizens. He was dearly loved by his parents and sister. Lewis had a premature and potentially preventable hospital death. As a testament to his remarkable young life and as a commitment to advance the health and safety of all South Carolinians, the Medical University of South Carolina and Health Sciences South Carolina have dedicated an endowed chair in Clinical Effectiveness and Patient Safety to his memory. Honoring Lewis in this enduring manner will serve always as a reminder that our primary mission is the health and safety of our patients.
