S. michael marcy memorial lecture | infectious diseases lecture series

In 2014, the medical community lost a brilliant professional and 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. He served on the California State immunization Committee and had recently completed a term on the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP). He served on the editorial boards of Pediatric Annals, The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, Infectious Diseases in Children, and the Pediatric Infections Forum and had been a peer-reviewer for several major pediatric and infectious disease journals. In his honor, AAP-CA2 established the S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture, the first of which took place on April 16, 2015. For this lecture, a world-renowned infectious diseases physician is invited to speak on the latest advances in their field.
