About The Emily Couric Memorial Lecture: The Emily Couric Memorial Lecture, developed by the ACG, the Virginia Gastroenterological Society and the Old Dominion Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, is in honor of Virginia State Senator Emily Couric, who died of pancreatic cancer in October of 2001. Senator Couric was a strong advocate for health care issues, particularly in her instrumental work to pass the nation’s first legislation mandating health insurance coverage for colorectal cancer screening.
