Remembering Jim Burgess 

Jim Burgess passed away on Monday, June 26th.  Jim was well known to many for his contribution to establishing electronic Health Economics Letters (eHEL), serving as the iHEA Treasurer from 2005 to 2015 and being the driving force behind the 12thiHEA World Congress in Boston. We are deeply saddened that Jim did not see the fruits of his efforts over the past few years in leading the Local Organizing Committee for this congress.

A celebration of Jim's life was held during the Congress, where some of Jim's friends and colleagues were able to speak about the impact that he had on them. Click here to view photos from the memorial service that was held, as well as memories that were shared from those who could not attend.
