Dr. Offit’s videos were removed by YouTube due to a suspected violation of community guidelines (Medical Misinformation due to “Vaccine” in the title). Consequently, his lecture had to be split into three files in order to host it on our website.

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 seventh 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 2021 lecture is Paul A. Offit, MD.
