Obituary

Lloyd W. Kitchens Jr., MACP

Lloyd W. Kitchens Jr., MACP, whose tenure on the College's Board of Regents ended earlier this year, died Aug. 23, 2001. A resident of Dallas, Dr. Kitchens was 54 years old.

"Lloyd had a reverence for internal medicine, and he felt passionately about this organization," said ACP-ASIM President William J. Hall, FACP. "He saw the College as the mechanism that would ensure the survival of our profession."

Dr. Hall noted several of Dr. Kitchens's many contributions to the College, including his involvement in ACP-ASIM merger deliberations and his work on the latest edition of the College's "Ethics Manual" while chairing the Ethics and Human Rights Committee. "His experience as a patient with a relentless chronic illness also influenced us all," Dr. Hall said.

Dr. Kitchens received his medical degree from the University of Mississippi. He entered private practice in oncology/hematology and became clinical professor of medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He later became medical director for the Virginia Cvetko Patient Education and Psychosocial Support Unit at the Baylor-Sammons Cancer Center and medical director emeritus of Texas Oncology, PA.

In the College, Dr. Kitchens served on the Board of Regents from 1995 through March 2001. He was also chair of the Nominations Committee from 1998 to 1999; chair of the Ethics and Human Rights Committee from 1995 to 1998; and Governor for the Texas Northern Chapter from 1989 to 1993.

He received the Laureate Award from the Texas Northern Chapter in 1999 and was awarded College Mastership this year at Annual Session. At the time of his death, he was a member of the ACP-ASIM Foundation Board of Trustees.
