This quote emphasizes that progress is made by looking forward and not dwelling on the past. That is not to say that an appreciation for the past is not necessary to provide valuable perspective. The JPU Company held an inaugural JPU Lectureship on October 2, 2021, at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. The past notwithstanding, the theme was “The Future of Pediatric Urology.” Two progressive and thought-provoking lectures were delivered. The first by Nicolas Kalfa from Montpellier, France discussed the future of research and education in pediatric urology, and the role of social media and AI. The second by Catherine deVries from Salt Lake City, Utah discussed mission work and emphasized that the future requires partnering with subspecialties and assessing the needs of the targeted communities. The lecture was followed by the presentations of the first David Frank Medals in Pediatric Urology to the lecturers. A panel discussion, including Aurore Bouty, Liam McCarty, Marie-Klaire Farrugia, and Piet Hoebeke rounded out the program. Stephen Griffin of the JPU Company arranged the recording and production of the lectureship, which will be available to subscribers of the JPU on the home website in the next few weeks. We hope that you have the opportunity to view this stimulating production.
