In Memoriam: Dr. Robert Remis

E-mail Print PDF

It is with profound sadness that we have learnt of the passing of Dr. Robert Remis on Thursday, September 25, 2014. He was a dedicated researcher, teacher, mentor and colleague who played an integral role in understanding the HIV epidemic in Ontario and in Canada. He worked closely with the African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario (ACCHO) since its inception and supported the response to HIV in Ontario's African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities. He was author to many epidemiological reports and spearheaded the Ontario HIV Epidemiologic Monitoring Unit housed at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. Robert will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.
