Formerly Executive Director of Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick for 15 years (1995-2010), Professor White was the inaugural NSW Chief Paediatrician in 2010, a position he held until 2016. From 1995 to 2016 Professor White was also a member of the Foundation’s Board.

“It's been an honour to serve on the Foundation’s Board for over 20 years and it will be an exceptional honour to serve as Patron. Through the Foundation we will work to innovate, to build, to grow and to engage the community around the issues of paediatric healthcare, so that together we can always put children first. As Patron, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to our children's future.” - Professor Les White
