New Endowed Chair at Morehouse

Comedian, actor, author, and proponent of higher education Bill Cosby and his wife Camille have donated $3 million for the establishment of the Poussaint-Satcher-Cosby Chair. The chair will honor former surgeon general David Satcher and Alvin Poussaint, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Poussaint was a script consultant on the long-running television sit-com, The Cosby Show.

The endowed chair will be the first component in the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine which will focus on mental health issues. Satcher will be the first holder of the chair.
