August 22, 2020
The 2020 Advances in Pediatrics Symposium, originally scheduled for March 28, has been rescheduled due to compliance with regulations related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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.
While we look forward to hosting our meetings in-person in the future, at this time it will be delivered entirely via a virtual platform from the UCLA media facility.

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.
