Hallman Lecture Series

Welcome to the Hallman Lecture Series at the University of Waterloo - where knowledge meets inspiration!

About the Lecture Series

The Hallman Lecture Series brings leading thinkers to University of Waterloo to engage the public on topics of health, well-being and health behaviour change. Established through a generous professorial endowment, this series aims to foster intellectual curiosity and the exchange of ideas amongst the general public, students, public health practitioners, educators and other professionals.

Professorial Endowment

The Series is made possible by the Lyle S. Hallman Professorial Endowment, a generous gift by developer and Order of Canada recipient Lyle S. Hallman (1922-2003) and his wife Wendy. This endowment enables us to invite distinguished speakers who have made significant contributions to their respective fields.
