2019 05 19 IFCC eNews May Edition dedicated to Prof. Howard Morris, IFCC President

05/19/2019

Sometimes “words” cannot express feelings, cannot express disappointment, cannot express the void left by the loss of somebody who represented at this very moment the “psyche” of the society. IFCC president, Prof. Morris is no longer with us. He fell on duty while traveling as an IFCC visiting lecturer. His luminous smile will not brighten Euromedlab in Barcelona. This IFCC e-News special issue, devoted to his memory, pays tribute to his legacy and presence as a man, as a scientist, as an IFCC officer, and as IFCC president. He has left us but will be forever remembered by so many people all over the world. Together with the whole IFCC community we express our warmest condolences to his family and our gratitude for his presence in our lives and in the life of IFCC.
