Joseph M. Mathews Oration

"Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be."
—Kahlil Gibran, poet (1883-1931)

We are privileged to be practicing medicine during an exciting era of progress. Advances in surgical and medical treatments and technology are occurring at a rapid pace. Our understanding of disease pathology, as well as genetic and environmental influences, is burgeoning.

As physicians our imperative is to keep apace of cutting-edge developments so that we may continue to provide patients with the best medical care available. No one understood this better than Joseph M. Mathews, MD. In his memory, we are pleased to offer our colleagues a special program now in its 12th year: the Joseph M. Mathews Oration.

We are grateful to each of our past guest lecturers and would like to thank our 2015 lecturer, Michael J. Stamos, MD, FACS, FASCRS, Proferssor and The John E. Connolly Chair, Department of Surgery, University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. Dr. Stamos established the Division of Colon & Rectal Surgery at UC Irvine in 2002 and has focused his research on rectal cancer, minimally invasive surgery, and anastomotic leaks.
