SMFM mourns the loss of a long-time member, Dr. Chad Klauser, of New York. Dr. Klauser joined the Society in 2003 and completed his MFM Fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Dr. Klauser was an author on more than 60 peer-reviewed articles in professional journals and was a frequent lecturer at Maternal-Fetal Medicine conferences. His deep compassion for his patients is reflected by the numerous patient awards he received. A link to his full obituary can be found here.
A donation to the Foundation for SMFM is one way to honor a SMFM member who has died. Your gift to the Foundation is an investment in the future of maternal-fetal medicine. Each gift advances pregnancy care through research scholarships, global initiatives in patient care and scientific endeavors, grants for clinical education, and mentorship in training the next generation of clinicians and scientists involved in improving pregnancy care. Once a financial gift is received, the Foundation will send a card to the family acknowledging your gift.
