Death of Kathryn Knowles, Executive Secretary of the Collegium Ramazzini (27 April 1976 - 18 September 2018)

It is with deep sadness that I have to announce the death of Kathryn Knowles, Executive Secretary of the Collegium Ramazzini. Kathryn passed away in Bologna on September 18, 2018 at the age of 42 after a few weeks' terrible and aggressive disease. She leaves a three year-old boy and a loving husband to whom, on behalf of all Fellows and Emeritus Fellows of the Collegium, I express our deepest condolences.

Kathryn joined the Collegium Ramazzini in 2006 as Executive Secretary and from that time until her death was the glue that held the "Collegium Family" together. In the words of one of the many Fellows who sent the General Secretariat a message of condolences, "Kathryn was one of the most energetic, ebullient, organized, helpful and just delightful people I ever met and she did so much for the Collegium Ramazzini Fellows".
Certainly, we will remember her forever as the most faithful of co-workers at the Collegium Ramazzini.
