It’s Not ‘Goodbye,’ It’s ‘See You Later’

In Memoriam: Peter Mauch, MD, Department of Radiation Oncology

Renowned as much for his groundbreaking contributions to medicine as his gentleness and warmth as a colleague, friend and physician, Dr. Mauch was beloved and admired by colleagues and patients – sometimes even before they had met him.
