It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our co-founder, Dr. Warner Slack. Our Division, our hospital, our professional community owes more to his pioneering work and gentlemanly demeanor than is possible to summarize here.
We treasure his every wise word and will make it a part of our mission to continue to spread his vision of healthcare and patient empowerment. We thank Warner (and his wonderful family) for being a great colleague, mentor and friend. We will miss him every day.
In lieu of flowers, Warner’s family has requested people wanting to honor him contribute to the Dr. Warner Slack Scholarship in Clinical Informatics here at BIDMC. To do this visit https://www.bidmc.org/give and select the Scholarship under Gift Designation.
