Leon and Josephine Winkelman Memorial Lecture

The Leon and Josephine Winkelman Memorial Lecture Series was established at the University of Michigan School of Social Work by the Winkelman brothers - Stanley J., John, Frederick R., and Henry R. - as a memorial to their parents.

The lecture series provides a forum for the presentation of new and emerging knowledge from the social sciences and the helping professions in the field of gerontology, and for the discussion of the application of such knowledge to the development of social policy, the organization and management of social welfare services, and the delivery of social work services.
