Let's work together

It would be hard to think of anyone who has had a more significant impact on the public discussion of ethical issues in pediatrics.

Lantos is an international treasure.  He understands doctors, recognizes the spiritual elements of illness and healing, and writes like an angel.

"...the premier pediatric bioethicist."

"John Lantos is a physician who sees, far more clearly than most, the critical state of medicine as a profession. Buffeted by social forces, economic pressures, and new conceptions of health care, the physician is often bewildered, angry, and unsure of his or her role. Dr. Lantos very cogently, and incisively, looks at the new possibilities, and the new problems, and suggests important directions for the future vitality of the physician as a professional."    - Steve Schroeder, Former President, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
