A portrait of the late Katherine M. Detre, one of the nation’s leading epidemiologists, was unveiled during a reception in the University Club. At the time of her death in 2006, Detre was a Distinguished Professor of Epidemiology in Pitt’s Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH). She led groundbreaking large-scale studies on the effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs on coronary artery disease and cardiovascular risk factors in women, among other topics. From left are Donald S. Burke, GSPH dean; Arthur S. Levine, senior vice chancellor for the health sciences and dean of the School of Medicine; Lewis H. Kuller, Distinguished University Professor of Public Health; and Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg. The portrait, now displayed in the Parran Hall lobby, was a gift to GSPH from two of Detre’s close friends.
