Dear friends and colleagues,
With deepest regrets and sorrow, we share with you the news that our mentor and friend Dr. Nevin Scrimshaw has passed away. Words fail to express the depth of the loss to his family, to this Foundation, and to the global nutrition community. INF hosted a beautiful Tribute to Dr. Scrimshaw in April; the video of the Tribute is now available to watch online.
In honor of Dr. Scrimshaw's memory, the INF board has created the Nevin Scrimshaw Foundation Advancement Fund. The Fund will honor Dr. Scrimshaw’s enormous contributions to public health and promote and expand his vision of nutrition research capacity building in the developing world.
Please feel free to share your thoughts on Dr. Scrimshaw, the influence and inspiration he may have had in your career, and impact on nutrition and health in your country. We are still collecting memorials to be published in a Tribute book. Email us at ScrimshawTribute@inffoundation.org or post on our Facebook page or blog.
