This lectureship was generously endowed by a Past President and Life Member of the ASO, Dr David T Taylor, in memory of his wife Jan. An overseas lecturer is supported to give lectures to all orthodontic students from Australia and New Zealand. These lectures are given during the Students Meeting which is held just before the biennial Foundation Meeting. In addition the Jan Taylor Lecturer is the keynote speaker at the Foundation Meeting.
