About our keynote speaker:

Lisa J. Brown, Ph.D
As chancellor of Washington State University Spokane, Lisa Brown leads the development of WSU’s rapidly growing, world-class center for health sciences education and research. Her efforts have contributed to establishment of a new College of Medicine on the campus and pursuit of accreditation for a second public medical school in the state of Washington.
Prior to joining WSU in January 2013, Brown served the Washington Legislature for 20 years, first in the House and later in the Senate. In 2005, she became the first Democratic woman in the state to hold the position of Senate majority leader.
During her legislative career, Brown was a passionate advocate for health sciences education and research at WSU Spokane. She gained state support for medical education and advanced education in nursing, as well as for WSU Spokane’s new pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences building.
Brown spearheaded a variety of other health-related initiatives. She was the prime sponsor of the bill that created the Life Sciences Discovery Fund, which supports innovative health care-related research in Washington State. She also led the effort to create the state’s Mental Health Parity Act of 2005, which improved the insurance coverage of mental health services for Washington residents. Among her successes was passage of the legislation to create the nonprofit Prescription Drug Assistance Foundation.
A native of Robinson, Illinois, Brown studied economics at the University of Illinois, in Champaign-Urbana, and at the University of Colorado, in Boulder, where she earned a PhD.
She was an associate professor of economics at Eastern Washington University from 1981 to 2001 and served as an associate professor in Gonzaga University’s master of organizational leadership program from 2001 to 2012.
