Peter would ask and expect us to care and protect our vulnerable patients, to expand and transfer our knowledge to the next generation of specialists, and to demand excellence in all of these endeavors. And he would do so with the same rigor, affection, and humor for which he was so widely admired during his long and productive life. This is how we will honor the prodigious legacy of Peter Rosen, MD, 1935–2019.
