2019 Advances in Pediatrics
Thank you to all who attended this event. We hope to see you again in 2020.
The S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture
In 2014, the medical community lost a brilliant professional, and a friend. Dr. S. Michael Marcy was a member of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. A Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at both USC and UCLA, Dr. Marcy had the distinction of having served actively in the education and research activities at the 4 major teaching programs in Los Angeles.
In his honor, and now in its fifth year, AAP-CA2 established the S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture. During this lecture, a world-renowned infectious disease physician is invited to speak on the latest advances of their field. In 2015 we had Mark H. Sawyer, MD, FAAP. The 2016 S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture featured Larry K. Pickering, MD. FAAP, past senior advisor to the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases of the CDC. In 2017, we were honored to welcome two speakers: Stephanie Marcy, PhD, speaking on The Forgotten Child, and Wilbert Mason, MD, MPH, FAAP speaking on Vaccine Hesitancy. In 2018 we had the privilege of having Michael T. Brady, MD, FAAP as the guest speaker.
The 2019 S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture speaker is Karin Nielsen, MD
