Join members of the department and community for the annual Allen Inspiring Children Lecture. This lectureship is grounded in sparking passion in new learners. Faculty members share experiences that made them wiser clinicians and how they continue to learn and grow from their patients.

The department is excited that it can once again hold some of its events in person. We encourage you to join us for the Allen Inspiring Children Lecture and reception in the Health Sciences Learning Center. It’s the perfect opportunity to show support for your colleagues and network and connect with department members. Breakfast and coffee will be provided for those who attend the reception. RSVP to attend in person by June 29.

History and Accreditation

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.
