A bioethics pioneer within his institution, the country and worldwide, Dr. Erich Loewy changed bioethics in innumerable ways. HIs emphasis on justice in healthcare was evident in his national and international work on the role of the physician in health and health care, rationing and more. His service to the bioethics community was extensive–as a leader in SSHV, on numerous editorial boards, and serving as an editor of Theoretical Medicine.
Loewy’s life has been described as nothing short of “remarkable.” He certainly had a remarkable impact on our field. He will be missed.
