Dr. Evelyn Hess, 1925 – 2015

posted: January 5, 2016

It saddens me to let you know that Dr. Evelyn Hess passed away on December 25, 2015. On behalf of OAR, we were honored to select Dr. Hess to receive the 1st OAR Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013. Her distinguished research career encompassed the broad spectrum of immunological and rheumatic diseases, with an emphasis on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, and trail blazing work on the environmental aspects of lupus. Dr. Hess gave so much to the Ohio Rheumatology community and will be missed. Dr. Hess’ obituary can be found here.

Kind Regards,
Dr. Stephanie Ott
OAR President
