Dick will be sorely missed. His last major professional role was that of President of the Massachusetts Medical Society, and it was near the end of his tenure when the bombing occurred during the Boston Marathon. Dick’s final speech to that august group heaped praise on the courageous EMS, firefighters, and police personnel who worked together to save so many lives.
May Dr. Richard Aghababian rest in peace.
Dr. Allison is professor of emergency medical care in the College of Health and Human Sciences at Western Carolina University. He is a Past President of ACEP.
