ACHM Saying Farewell To "Father Of Hyperbaric Medicine"

Dr. Eric Kindwall
We are moved by this week's tribute to hyperbaric medicine pioneer Eric Kindwall by his colleagues at the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine. Kindwall has served as executive director of ACHM since 2004. He was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in 2007, and his health is quickly deteriorating. But the College relays this uplifting message from Kindwall's native Sweden:

Dr. Kindwall is currently alert, comfortable and able to have conversations with his family and friends. Despite his current situation, his sense of humor remains intact. His wife, Marilyn, has shared that Dr. Kindwall enjoys receiving notes and phone calls from friends and former colleagues. She has suggested that anyone who might otherwise attend a memorial service would instead write Eric a letter or share a few moments with him while he is still alert and aware.

Read the complete farewell and get the contact information on the ACHM website. Our thoughts and best wishes to all our ACHM friends in Milwaukee and across the country.
