Ruth Hughes Lectureship (sponsored by the Greater Houston Chapter of SUNA)
This lectureship was established by the Greater Houston Chapter of SUNA to honor Ruth Hughes for her many contributions to the specialty of urology. Ruth served SUNA at the national level as president from 1978-1979 and at the local level as chapter president as well as being one of the “faithful few” who have contributed to keeping our local SUNA chapter alive. Her career in urology spanned the spectrum of urology doing urodynamics, office practice, inpatient care, and research. Ruth now resides in a memory care facility and therefore this scholarship is awarded to a SUNA member whose topic is related to long term care.
