In Memory of a Patient's Advocate: Professor Andrea Tranquilli

Última actualización el Lunes, Agosto 04, 2014

On January 12 of 2014, the women of the world, not just of Italy, lost a fine physician, scientist and - most personally - advocate. Professor Andrea Tranquilli, 58 years old, taken from us far too soon, enthusiastically believed in the power and importance of patient advocates. If we ever achieve a Global Preeclampsia Awareness Day — still a dream for many – it will be in no small part because of his urging, as only a spirited Italian can offer! He loved what we at the Preeclampsia Foundation were doing and never wasted an opportunity to encourage and motivate us. In his beloved Italy, he served as the medical advisor to Sulle Ali di un Angelo, a patient advocacy organization begun in 2005. On behalf of the women of the world who have suffered from preeclampsia, we are very grateful for his directed and relentless focus on this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy, and especially for remembering and encouraging those of us at the center of the issue – the families who have endured preeclampsia.
