In Memoriam: Dr Douw Greeff

  • Willie Frederick Mollentze University of the Free State


It is with great sadness that the editorial team at JEMDSA learned of the passing of Dr Douw Greeff, owner of Medpharm Publications, on 11 November 2014. In spite of ill-health, Douw hosted a dinner party on 1 November in Pretoria, celebrating the 25 years of existence of Medpharm Publications, also JEMDSA’s publisher for the past 6 years. For the event Douw invited the editors of all the journals in the Medpharm stable, along with their spouses. Douw entertained his guests with his typical charisma to a lovely evening of good food and music.
