The legacy of Stanford's Philip Pizzo

Last week, my colleague wrote about Philip Pizzo, MD, and the recent podcast he did with our outgoing dean. A special issue of Inside Stanford Medicine out today also provides an in-depth look at Pizzo's time here, including a list of accomplishments and numerous quotes from colleagues. I think Stanford Provost John Etchemendy, PhD, summed up things nicely, telling writer Susan Ipaktchian:

[Pizzo] now leaves the school in the best shape it's ever been — academically, clinically and physically — poised for even greater achievements to come. That is his legacy, and a remarkable one it is.
