Dr. Robert Heaney left us on August 6, 2016. In this newsletter we have provided some information about his accomplishments for you to look at below. We’d truly love to have any memories you have with him shared with us/facebook to share with the world!
Dr. Heaney provided nearly 50 years of advancements in our understanding of bone biology, osteoporosis, and human calcium and vitamin D physiology. He is the author of three books and has published over 400 original papers, chapters, monographs, and reviews in scientific and educational fields. At the same time, he has engaged nutritional policy issues and has helped redefine the context for estimating nutrient requirements. He was an inspiration to researchers everywhere – his intellect, dedication, integrity, and caring was unsurpassed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
