NCMS Life member Dr. Eugene Bozymski died Thursday, February 15. He was 88.

Bozymski graduated from John Carroll University and Marquette School of Medicine in a remarkable six years. He trained at Scripps Mercy in San Diego and returned to the Medical College of Wisconsin for his three-year residency as he began his over 50-year career as a gastroenterologist. A fellowship at UNC School of Medicine helped to prepare him to serve as Professor of Medicine and Head of Endoscopy at Carolina for many years.

His commitment to excellence in patient care and dedication to nurturing future generations of gastroenterologists were evident in his leadership roles and mentorship of GI fellows.

Dr. Bozymski joined the NCMS in 1969.

The North Carolina Medical Society extends its deepest sympathies.
