The Christopher Y. Thomas Lectureship was established in honor of Dr. Chris Thomas and serves to permanently honor the 40 years of contributions he has made to Saint Luke's and to medical education. The fund, managed at Saint Luke's Foundation, sponsors an annual program wherein a nationally prominent speaker is invited to visit Kansas City to meet with faculty and residents at KUMC, UMKC, and Saint Luke's, and to deliver the annual Dr. Christopher Y. Thomas Lecture.
