Remembering Gene O'Connell

This lectureship has been made possible by a generous gift from Gene (Gino) O’Connell, a liver transplant recipient at the University of Washington in 1995. Gino has inspired us all with his good humor, strength and positive view on life.

A Special Thanks

A special thank you to Dr. Robert Carithers, Emeritus Professor of Medicine and the founder of the Liver Care Line at the University of Washington. Through his innovative research and outstanding patient care philosophy, Dr. Carithers has become a nationally regarded physician for Hepatology and liver transplantation.​​​​​​
