Dr. Jack Campbell stopped by this week to discuss historical pediatrics books and the upcoming Campbell Lecture in Pediatric Surgery. The 2011 lecture will be held on May 26. This year's lecture, "Longterm Outcomes in Childhood Cancer: The Unintended Consequences of Success," will be given by Jay L. Grosfeld, M.D., the Lafayette F. Page Professor Emeritus of Pediatric Surgery at Indiana University.
The John R. Campbell, M.D. Lectureship in Pediatric Surgery was established in 2008 "to bring new ideas and thinking in pediatric surgery to OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital." The first annual lecture, “Pediatric surgery: A 62-year perspective from the nation’s oldest children’s hospital" was given by former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, M.D.
