I knew David as a dedicated and helpful member of the ECRI Board of Trustees. He always gave good advice and was an effective member of the Board.

John Reiss, Chairman Emeritus, ECRI Board of Trustees

David served as a dedicated member of ECRI Institute's Board of Trustees for more than 40 years. When he retired in 2018, the board honored him with Trustee Emeritus status. David was dedicated to ECRI's mission and he helped to guide our organization through periods of rapid change in healthcare. He held many roles during his four decades of service to the board, including as Treasurer and chair of the board's Finance Committee.
ECRI Institute was fortunate to have David's wise counsel and dedication to our mission. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family during this time of mourning.
