The Donna J. Brogan Lecture in Biostatistics was established in late 2004 by the Biostatistics Department of the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University to honor the outstanding career of Dr. Donna Jean Brogan, a biostatistics/statistics faculty member at Emory for 34 years. Emory recognized Dr. Brogan's inspiring career with a gala retirement celebration in 2004. Her colleagues, friends and family members marked this occasion with gifts to support what would become the annual Donna J. Brogan Lecture in Biostatistics. These lectures, always in April, may be related to Dr. Brogan's research interests in sample surveys, breast cancer epidemiology and statistical education. Since the inception of the lectures in 2006, preeminent scholars and lecturers in biostatistics have visited Emory to deliver the lecture in honor of Dr. Brogan.
In 2010, Dr. Brogan made a significant contribution to establish an endowment fund that will provide funding continuity for the lecture. Her endowment, combined with generous gifts from colleagues and friends, makes possible one of only two named lectures at the Rollins School of Public Health.

Brogan Lecture in Biostatistics for "Select Fund".
