UCLA suspended all in-person classes and cancelled all non-essential gatherings of more than 100 persons to encourage social distancing in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus. The new date, presented entirely online, is Saturday, August 22, 2020. Please join us for this fantastic virtual conference.

S. Michael Marcy, MD, FAAP 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 sixth 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.  Our 2020 lecture is Mobeen H. Rathore, M.B.B.S.
