Todd Ouida Lectureship & Community Event

The Todd Ouida Annual Lecture in Childhood Anxiety and Depression and Todd Ouida Community Event honors the memory of Todd Ouida. Although severe anxiety troubled Todd throughout his early childhood, he overcame the disorder and went on to have a rich high school experience, later earning a degree in psychology from U-M. He had just launched into the beginning of a promising professional career at Cantor Fitzgerald when he lost his life in the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks at the age of 25.

The lecture is traditionally held in the fall at the Rachel Upjohn Building and features a prominent speaker with expertise in anxiety or depression among youth, while the inaugural community event will be held at Pioneer High School in 2017.

Todd’s parents, Herb and Andrea Ouida, also established the Todd Ouida Clinical Scholar Awards, which are designed to further the work of outstanding young researchers working in childhood anxiety and depression. Herb Ouida serves as a member of the Depression Center’s National Advisory Board.
