I reported in April on the death of Dr. Harvey Goldman, one of our beloved and esteemed colleagues (who loved baseball and is here seen with a Red Sox World Series trophy). Today, we honored this eminent pathologist with a memorial celebration and dedication of the Pathology Department Conference Room in his name. Speakers at the event included people from BIDMC, but also Fred Silva, Executive Vice President of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, and Henry Appelman, Harvey's long-standing friend and colleague from the University of Michigan Medical School.
There were humorous and poignant remarks, too, from Robert Najarian, a gastrointestinal pathology fellow at BIDMC. He remarked that there were so many stories he had heard from residents and fellows that he felt badly he could not tell them all. I suggested we might give people a chance to tell those stories right here on this blog.
So, if you have studied or worked with Harvey at any point in your training or career and wish to offer stories or comments here for your friends, colleagues, and the world, please submit them.
