Michael Burke was a gentle giant. His humble and soft-spoken manner belied his tremendous impact on the field of Pediatrics and the world beyond, from Baltimore to Haiti. He inspired all of us who were fortunate to work with him by modeling kindness, compassion, service, and joy. We honor Michael’s memory by striving to live and practice according to these values.
