Bloustein Memorial Lecture was established to honor the memory of these two extraordinary individuals. This lecture series focuses on three main themes: the study and preservation of animal species and the natural environment; the celebration of love, happiness, and laughter as tools of clinical medicine; and the exploration and promotion of humane values, which Ed Bloustein believed were woven in the fabric of Judaic tradition and passed down from generation to generation.
