About the Iris and Ted Wagner Endowed Lectureship

The Iris and Ted Wagner Endowed Lectureship was established in 1999 from a generous gift to the Swedish Medical Center Foundation from Iris and Ted Wagner, M.D. The endowed lectureship was created to further the efforts of Swedish Medical Center and the Swedish Orthopedic Institute in improving the treatment of spine related diseases. Through this lectureship, leading specialists dealing with the spine will be invited to address audiences of physicians, nurses and other health-care providers. It is intended that participants in the lectureship will come from throughout the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada.
