James L. Talbert, MD Memorial Lectureship
The UF Division of Pediatric Surgery presents the James L. Talbert, MD Memorial Lectureship. With Dr. Talbert’s passing in 2019, this lectureship will continue his legacy in perpetuity. This event will also feature a celebration of Dr. Talbert’s life and memory. As a part of a celebration of his life, we will be hosting a Research Symposium and luncheon after the lecture in the Harrell Medical Education Building. We hope you will attend and join us in honoring Dr. Talbert.
Dr. Talbert bestowed a remarkable legacy both at the University of Florida and throughout the state of Florida where he single-handedly established pediatric surgery in 1967. Under his keen guidance and mentorship, many surgical residents chose to become pediatric surgeons and subsequent leaders in the field. He remained a passionate advocate for children’s surgical needs throughout his career – from the victims of traumatic injury to those suffering from cancer, as well as neonates with severe congenital anomalies. Dr. Talbert was instrumental in developing the first intensive care unit for children in Florida. He accomplished so many things over the course of his career, and they cannot possibly all be listed.
