Named to honor the memory and the significance of their impact on developing a humanistic approach to the delivery of health care in Buffalo and throughout the world, the Humanism Rounds will reflect the visions of late Dr. Richard Sarkin and Dr. John Paroski.

The Sarkin-Paroski Humanism Rounds will occur quarterly on the
second Friday of the month at 12pm in Alford Auditorium located on
the 2nd floor of the Oishei Children's Outpatient Center at Conventus.
See the complete schedule below. Lunch will continue to be provided for those who attend and participate.
