The Peter H. Berman Memorial Lectureship Fund

A personal campaign sponsored by Ashley Rees-Jones


On September 1st, 2016 , our longtime friend and colleague Dr. Peter H. Berman, Professor Emeritus and Division Chief of Child Neurology (1969-1994) passed away. During his 25 years as division chief, the division grew to include faculty of every subspecialty, with focus in clinical or basic science research, teaching and education. Peter never retired and worked teaching our residents, fellows while caring for his patients at CHOP until the day before he died. We never had the opportunity to show our appreciation for those contributions. 

We therefore hope you will support us in the endowment of the Peter H. Berman Memorial Lectureship. Your donation on this site will sponsor one speaker per year to provide a lecture in Peter’s honor at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, starting in the fall of 2018.

In addition to our annual lecture, we have planned a special event this year to celebrate Peter and his contributions to Child Neurology. “An Era of Child Neurology: Past, Present and Future” is a full day symposium which will take place on Monday, September 25th.

Any donation is welcome. CHOP is a non-profit organization and your donation will be tax deductible. For questions about the fund, please contact our Donor Relations Department at For questions about the symposium please contact Ashley Rees-Jones at
