A remembrance of David L. Rimoin, MD, PhD

Cedars-Sinai memorial set for Monday

Please join colleagues and members of the Rimoin family in a program to celebrate the life and accomplishments of the late David L. Rimoin, MD, PhD. The event will be Monday, June 11, at 4 p.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium.

If you wish to make a gift in Dr. Rimoin's memory, please visit www.discoveringforlife.org/Rimoin.

Dr. Rimoin was director of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Genetics Institute, the Steven Spielberg Family Chair in Pediatrics and a pioneer in research in skeletal disorders and abnormalities who played a pivotal role in developing mass screenings for Tay-Sachs and other heritable disorders. He died May 27 after a diagnosis of Stage 4 pancreatic cancer early last month.
