      Bob Haggerty has played a pivotal role in academic general pediatrics. One of the founders of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association, he has served as its president and was one of the early George Armstrong lecturers. He chaired the department of pediatrics at the University of Rochester during an exceptionally productive time, where he nurtured the notions of community and social pediatrics, built a strong, multidisciplinary research team, and trained numerous scholars who have since populated many departments around the country (and around the world). (Many of the Rochester faculty from that time have been Ambulatory Pediatric Association presidents: Evan Charney, Bob Hoekelman, Phil Nader, and Barry Pless.)
