Background: An anonymous donor contributed a gift of $780,840.34 to the College of Medicine to complete the funding for an endowed chair in the Department of Family Practice in memory of Dr. Nicholas J. Pisacano. This Chair will be known as the Nicholas J. Pisacano, M.D. Chair in Family Practice as a tribute to Dr. Pisacano's outstanding contributions to the teaching and medical professions.

After Dr. Pisacano's death, the American Board of Family Practice provided funding for a fundraising program that resulted in gifts from friends and family physicians from all over the nation.

It is an honor to recommend establishment of this chair as a permanent tribute to an esteemed friend and colleague of the University of Kentucky and the Chandler Medical Center.
