Dr. John Sbarbaro was a pioneer in improving the health of Denver and beyond. He started his career in public health
and helped develop the mode of tuberculosis treatment directly-observed therapy) that is now a core element in the
global plan for that disease. He went on to help found Denver Community Health Services – the network of neighborhood health centers that has grown
to provide high-quality medical care to one-third of Denver’s population – and managed the health care system that would
become Denver Health. The lectureship honors Dr. Sbarbaro’s legacy of iconoclastic, innovative public health and highlights the
need for creativity, courage and innovation as we face the public health problems of today.
