In Memoriam: Sylvan Lee Weinberg, MD, MACC

ACC Past President Sylvan Lee Weinberg, MD, MACC, a renowned cardiologist, educator and writer passed away on Jan. 17, 2017 in Dayton, OH. He was 93 years old. “Sylvan Weinberg was a role model for an entire generation of clinical cardiologists,” said ACC President Richard A. Chazal, MD, FACC. “I first met him when he served as a visiting professor at Indiana University in the 1980’s.  His ACC career included a highly successful term as president, but also a 15-year legacy as an editor of ACCEL.  His ability to balance a practice career, academics and service to the College is a tribute to his intellect and character.” Read Weinberg’s In Memoriam on ACC.org.
