We have lost Erich Saling at the age of 96 after his courageous fight will illness. He has been and will always be considered the father of modern perinatology for his many scientific contributions and for his tireless efforts to bring obstetricians and pediatricians together to help pregnant & fetal patients and mothers and newborns throughout the world. His commitment to excellence, his warmth, and gentle nature will be with us forever!
Erich has been the lifelong president of our international academy of perinatal medicine. We are certain (and sure you all agree) he is deservedly in heaven at this time after a long wonderful life of service !
We believe he will use his considerable influence to permit our long delayed Marrakesh Academy meeting to proceed in May 2022 . We plan to honor Erich in a more formal way at that time.
Persistent Covid-19 makes international travel difficult if not impossible so we cannot come together at this time.
We ask all to honor Erich by keeping him in your thoughts and prayers in your own way
With much love and respect
Asim and Frank
