AHA Statement on Passing of Robert Pear

AHA Statement on Passing of Robert Pear

 

Rick Pollack

AHA President and CEO

 

May 8, 2019

 

Robert Pear was a giant of journalism. A story with Robert’s name in the byline was a must-read for all the policy world. And yet, for all of his achievements – including writing more than 6,700 articles in The New York Times – the outpouring of memories and tributes make clear that his talent and tenacity as a reporter were surpassed only by his compassion.

 

The nation has lost a thoughtful and insightful reporter who helped bring much-needed clarity to complicated issues that affect us all. His integrity and professionalism will be part of his legacy and serve as a role model for future generations of journalists.

 

The AHA sends our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. Robert will be sorely missed.
