Gerald Sanders Berenson, MD

September 19, 1922 - November 22, 2018

Dr. Gerald S. Berenson, our long-time friend and colleague, passed away in his sleep on November 22, 2018 at the age of 96. Dr. Berenson was an icon in the SSCI and the SRM. He attended the SRM almost every year since he was elected to SSCI membership in 1961. He served as Secretary-Treasurer from 1965-1968 and was President in 1969. He was selected as the Founders' Medal recipient in 1988. He will certainly be missed at our annual meetings.

Dr. Berenson's contribution to medicine and to academics are numerous. He was a world-renowned cardiologist who made seminal contributions to not only the field of cardiovascular medicine but to health care education and health care in general through his work with the Bogalusa Heart Study.
