Dr. Noel R. Peterson Founders Lecture Series

The annual Dr. Noel R. Peterson Founders Lecture Series is a free, local forum for healthcare providers and other community members to discuss issues including healthcare reform, bioethics, the impact of philanthropy, and other important issues in healthcare.

The Founders Lecture Series was established through an endowment gift from OMC past president Dr. Noel Peterson and his wife, Ann, in 2006. It is supported by annual gifts from many OMC clinicians, employees, and community members.

Lecture Topic for 2019

The annual free Dr. Noel R. Peterson Founders Lecture Series for OMC employees and community members was held on Monday, May 13, 2019, from 5:30-7:30 PM, to Rochester’s Doubletree Hotel (150 South Broadway).

Nick Mezacapa, retired Episcopal priest, presented on “The Discipline of a Pro.”

In the people-intense work environment where optimal client service depends upon staff teamwork and trust, you have to be disciplined. Facing issues as they arise, with an open and healthy perspective, is fundamental and requires a deliberate effort. This presentation explores the basic aspects that serve that effort.
