School of Medicine
Established December 1998
For more than 50 years Drs. Sam and Lolita Weakley personified the absolute best in medicine through their tireless devotion to superb patient care, professional development and educational excellence at their alma mater, the University of Louisville School of Medicine.
The couple chose to continue their legacy by funding two endowed chairs in the school of medicine — the Samuel D. and Lolita S. Weakley Chair in Surgical Oncologyand the Lolita S. and Samuel D. Weakley Endowed Research Chair in Anesthesiology, which was matched by the Research Challenge Trust Fund.
