Lisa Schwartz, professor of Medicine and of Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School died on November 29, 2018 after a seven-year struggle with cancer—a terrible loss to all who knew her.

Lisa, 55, was a bright beacon leading the way in the field of risk communication as well as evidence-based shared decision-making. She was extraordinary in her rigor of thought, intellectual integrity, warm humanity, humor, and love of life.

She and her husband, Steve Woloshin, have been international thought leaders in research on communication of medical information for the public, health professionals, the media, and policymakers.
