In Memory of Dr. Atsuko Heshiki, past MWIA president
We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Dr. Atsuko Heshiki of Japan. Dr. Heshiki was Past President of the Medical Women’s International Association (2007-2010) and Chair of the MWIA Centennial Committee. She was the leading proponent within MWIA to lobby for New York as the location for the 2019 MWIA Centennial Meeting. She will be greatly missed but fondly remembered for her dedication to MWIA, her successful career as a Professor of Radiology, her lovely personality and her command of ballroom dancing. We have created the Dr. Atsuko Heshiki MWIA Centennial Fund to help carry out and honor her vision for the MWIA Centennial.
We are compiling remembrances of Atsuko to share with MWIA, the Japan Medical Women’s Association, and her family here.
