Cutting edge lectures

The first Goldhart Ranney Lecture was held in 1979, funded by the generosity of the late Irwin Goldhart and Kenneth Ranney. Over the years, a long and impressive line-up of distinguished speakers has presented the Goldhart Ranney Lecture including: Apollo 13 Captain James Lovell, Dr. Thomas Starzi, a leader in kidney and liver transplantation; and world-renowned heart specialist, Dr. Tirone David.

This year, Dr. Stephen W. Scherer, Director of the McLaughlin Centre and The Centre for Applied Genomics, and Senior Scientist at the Hospital For Sick Children will take the stage for the Lecture event and speak about ‘Decoding the Human Genome: What it Means for Families and Practice’.

The Lecture is free and staff, physicians, volunteers and members of the community are encouraged to attend.
