Presidents Letter


This Presidents letter is most bittersweet, as we at EFF note the passing in April of Dr. Sherman Holvey, founder and past chairman of EFF. Sherm defined the consummate diabetologist, working for over 50 years in Los Angeles to improve the lives of diabetics everywhere. Sherm was past president of the American Diabetes Association, physician to many of the Hollywood greats with diabetes, and a leader in the clinical diabetes arena, but his greatest career passion was actually you, the fellows who have been and will be the vanguard leading to better care and an ultimate cure for all new and existing diabetics.

When Sherm began his mission, none of the professional societies had any role for fellows either educationally or organizationally, and by the time Sherm retired from EFF 5 years ago, all voices in Endocrinology recognized the importance of our young colleagues. All of you are Sherm’s legacy and it is a proud one to have.

Thank you, Sherm for all you have done and we at EFF remember you fondly.

Best wishes for 2018,

Dr. Mark Stolar
