Late in 2021 we said goodbye to Dr. Richard B. Goldbloom, who passed away in Halifax, NS on November 19 at the age of 96. A compassionate pediatrician, educator, chief of pediatrics, and director of research (1967-1985), he was instrumental in bringing world class clinical care to the IWK Hospital for Children (now the IWK Health Centre) in Halifax.
