Our mission is to:
The Greater New Orleans Pediatric Society (GNOPS) was created on January 11, 1955 by a small group of New Orleans pediatricians- Drs. J.D. Russ, Jim Treadway, Norman Robinson and Max Perret. These physicians first formed a group called Pediatric Education Group of New Orleans (PEGNO) whose main purpose was education for pediatricians after residency. After a year and a half, a group of physicians convened to form a new more formal and comprehensive group called the Greater New Orleans Pediatrics Society.
In 2005, GNOPS celebrated 50 years of making a difference in the lives of children in Greater New Orleans.
