100th Lecture! Changing Medicine or The Life of Tom Petty by Dr. Roman

As we celebrate our 100th lecture and the certification of many of our lectures as worthy of CME, we want to ask our viewers and listeners to take a step back with us and reflect on what is possible if we forget to imagine the impossible.  Dr. Roman takes us on a journey exploring the life of a man who changed pulmonary medicine in the 20th century. A story of an ordinary man, with extraordinary drive and a passion for medicine. Dr. Roman challenges us all to dream and to believe in our own ability to reshape our profession in the 21st century as we "stay ahead of the game!"

To improve is to change, to be perfect is to change often.  - Winston Churchill
