EPEC Remembers Larry Librach
Dr. Larry LibrachEPEC notes with sadness the death of Dr. Larry Librach.

Larry was a leader in many spheres of palliative care and a cherished friend and colleague of ours in EPEC. He was one of the founders of EPEC and taught for many years in our conferences. We will miss his wisdom, his humor and his compassion. Through his teaching of colleagues and his care of patients and their families, he leaves a legacy that will last for years and decades to come.

In honor of Larry's lifelong commitment to palliative care the University of Toronto has set up a fund in his honor. Donations may be made to the Larry Librach Chair in Palliative Care at the University of Toronto, Department of Family Medicine, online or by phone at 1-800-463-6048
