The Ledingham Series looks at how inspirational leaders overcame challenges to achieve transformational changes within their own fields. The aim of the series is to inspire medical trainees to excellence in their academic, clinical and personal endeavors. The talks are individual in style and are followed by a short interview and the opportunity for questions. On this occasion, we are delighted to be joined by:
