Robert H. YoungLast week I asked you to save the dates October 31 – November 2 on your calendar for our annualNew Frontiers in Pathology meeting.  On behalf of the organizing committee and my Co-Directors, Drs. Lauren Smith and Maria Westerhoff, I am thrilled to announce Dr. Robert H. (“Robin”) Young as this year's featured A. James French Lecturer on Saturday, November 2nd.  Robin is one of the world’s foremost authorities in gynecologic pathology.  Robin’s long and distinguished career at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) as Robert E. Scully Professor of Pathology in Harvard Medical School has spawned over 600 peer-reviewed publications (h-index 94) and multiple textbooks showcasing not only his authoritative mastery of gynecologic pathology but also his longstanding interest in the history of medicine in general and our discipline in particular.  He will join members of our own faculty to make Saturday a great day to refresh your knowledge of conditions that account for much of what our community pathology peers confront on a daily basis.  Don’t miss this chance to hear from one of the pathology’s most celebrated senior statespersons!
