OBITUARY:

Professor Bernard Forette, MD, PhD, passed away on December 7, 2016, during his sleep, at home, in the Paris neighborhood where he was born and had always lived. One could say that he left us in the same way that he had considered life: in a discreet manner, far from the exaltations and excesses of our society.
Many have probably known Bernard Forette better than me, so kindly apologize for these few words written as IAGG Immediate Past-President. Bernard Forette is undoubtedly the only colleague to have fought for 10 years to obtain the presidency of IAGG’s 20th World congress in Paris, and then to have left the honors to another one. This also matched his way of thinking. An English proverb tells us that before each extraordinary man hides an exceptional woman. One can certainly say that before an extraordinary woman hides in Paris, an exceptional man.

 

On behalf of
Bruno VELLAS, MD, PhD, IAGG Immediate Past-President
Alain FRANCO, MD, PhD, IAGG Immediate Past-Secretary General and Vice President
Athanase BENETOS, MD, PhD, IAGG Immediate Past-Treasurer
