Memorial Service for William C. Shoemaker

The memorial service for William C. Shoemaker, MD, MCCM, a founding father of the Society of Critical Care Medicine and its third president, will be held Saturday, July 30, 2016, at 11 a.m. in the Aresty Auditorium at the Keck School of Medicine USC (1450 Biggy Street, Los Angeles, California).

Dr. Shoemaker was a key voice in the effort to have critical care considered a specialized area of medicine, and was a staunch believer that optimal critical care should be delivered by a multidisciplinary team. Today, the robust state of critical care and of the Society is due in large part to his trailblazing efforts.
