Dr. John Lantos, director of the Bioethics Center at Children’s Mercy Hospital and professor of pediatrics at the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Medicine, was honored with the William G. Bartholome Award for Ethical Excellence at the recent National Conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in Orlando, Florida.The Bartholome Award recognizes an individual who has significantly impacted public discussion of ethical issues in pediatric medicine. 

Lantos’ research areas include bioethics, doctor–patient communication, research ethics, end-of-life care and the religious and philosophical issues in relation to healthcare.

Lantos said, “It was a tremendous honor to receive this award, especially because it was named after fellow Kansas Citian William Bartholome. Bill was a pioneer and a leader in pediatric bioethics, a mentor and an inspiration to me, and a revered member of the faculty at KUMC for many years. It is nice to think that his legacy lives on.”
