Richards to pancreatic cancer on April 4th. We also send our thoughts to his family, friends, and the colleagues with whom he worked around the world.
“Cory was a life-long advocate for public health, with an unflagging commitment to Guttmacher’s mission for over 40 years,” Purnima Mane, President of Pathfinder said. “We will all miss his incredible passion and strong voice for global health.”
