The Dr. Peter Boris Dent Memorial Lecture was established in 2022 by the Department of Pediatrics, colleagues, friends, and family in honour of the late Dr. Peter Boris Dent, an exceptional pediatrician who founded and was the driving force behind the creation of what is now known as McMaster Children's Hospital and the adjacent Ronald McDonald House. In his memory, this annual lecture will address emerging new research leading to improved healthcare in our community and beyond.  

Our guest speaker, Dr. Maggie Larche, will be presenting the "Lessons from Dr. Peter Dent," which will highlight the valuable learnings from Dr. Dent, important clinical and research initiatives inspired by him, and ongoing research efforts.
