Joseph A. Wagner Memorial Lecture Spotlights Stroke Prevention
Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Pennypacker Auditorium was the setting on April 11
of a special Medicine Grand Rounds featuring the third annual Joseph A.
Wagner, MD, Memorial Lecture.
Dr. Gerald V. Naccarelli, MD, Bernard Trabin chair in Cardiology,
professor of Medicine, and chief, Division of Cardiology, Pennsylvania
State University College of Medicine/The Milton S. Hershey Medical
Center presented “Stroke Prevention in AFIB: An Update on Novel
Anticoagulants, Where are we in 2013?” Dr. Nacarelli’s lecture
focused primarily on recent advances and developments in stroke
prevention and their application to clinical practice.
The lecture series is named for Joseph A. Wagner, MD, the former Bryn
Mawr physician and chief of Cardiology (1967-1972). The Joseph A.
Wagner, MD Cardiac Education Endowment Fund was established in 2004 by
Dr. Wagner’s widow, Bernice, and her three sons, Theodore, Robert and
Jeffrey. It was Bernice and her sons’ desire to honor their husband and
father’s memory by creating a perpetual legacy to support continuing
medical education in cardiology at Bryn Mawr Hospital. Numerous memorial
gifts from members of the Wagner family, former colleagues and friends
have augmented the Fund’s principal, which hopefully will continue to
grow. Additional gifts may be made to the Fund at any time.
Distributions from the Wagner Endowment will fund this lecture series on
an annual basis.
