Stan Brock, Founder and President of Remote Area Medical, Dies

Stan Brock, and his assistant Sherri Elizabeth, taken recently.


                     It is with great sorrow that I report that today, while at work, Stan Brock, the founder and president of Remote Area Medical, died.  Brock was a television star who hosted Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom in 1968.  In 1985, he founded Remote Area Medical which provides medical care and dental care to those without access, both internationally and in the United States. They have treated more than a million people.

                     Today, I send sincere condolences to his family, his friends, his co-workers, and especially to a dear friend of mine, Sherri Elizabeth, who was his assistant.

                     Stan Brock leaves an incredible legacy for those of us who remain on Earth.  He also ensured that the important work of RAM both internationally and domestically will continue.
