Dr. David Allen describes the lectureship as an opportunity to reflect on the experiences that pediatricians and clinician-scientists have with young patients that shape career choices, influence research paths, and prompt self-reflection about being even more careful and compassionate people. “As pediatricians, we honor children when we remember, acknowledge, and keep close to our hearts the important effect they’ve had in our lives as professionals and persons,” explained Allen. The annual lectureship will provide a motivational mentoring talk from an experienced pediatrician describing how pediatric patients have inspired and influenced them.

About the Lecture
One of Dr. David Allen’s favorite encouragements has always been to keep learning and growing from his patients. As pediatricians, we honor children when we remember, acknowledge, and keep close to our hearts the profound influences they’ve had on us, both as professionals and as people. The inaugural Allen Family Foundation Inspiring Children Lectureship welcomes new trainees to this journey and to motivate the rest of us to continue on it.
