This Lectureship was established through a generous donation by the Fishers in 2014 to generate ongoing interest in the history of Pediatric Endocrinology.
The proposed lecture should cover some aspect of relevant history, e.g., pioneers, specific diseases, therapies, practice, basic science, understanding of disease mechanisms, diagnostic methods, etc. There are no membership restrictions for lecturers. The lecture will take place bi-annually at the PES Annual Meeting.
The next Fisher History Lectureship will be presented at the 2022 PES Annual Meeting.
