Ann McKee Urges MED Graduates to Speak Up for the Voiceless

May 16th, 2019 in Event, News

Ann McKee is no stranger to accolades and honors. The William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor and director of BU’s CTE Center has been lauded for her pioneering research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive, untreatable neurological condition associated with repetitive blows to the head. She was named Bostonian of the Year by the Boston Globe Magazine in 2017, honored as one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2018, and was elected to the National Academy of Medicine, also in 2018. But an invitation from the School of Medicine Class of 2019 to deliver its Convocation address left her “surprised, thrilled, and a little bit terrified.”

“I cannot imagine a greater honor than to be asked by the students for words to carry them into the future,” she said to the 206 graduating PhD and MD students at the Track & Tennis Center ceremony May 16. The invitation led her to look back at her life, she said, and realize “how much medicine and science have meant to me.”
