We at the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity are deeply saddened by the loss earlier this week of our treasured friend and colleague Dr. Paul G. Barash, MD.
Paul was a brilliant physician, mentor, researcher and educator in the field of anesthesiology. He also had a deep interest in dyslexia and was a genuine advocate for dyslexics and their families.
A New York native who graduated from the City College of New York and the University of Kentucky, Paul was a member of the Yale medical community for almost 50 years. He had published over 300 original scientific publications and was a gifted teacher – there is now, very deservedly, a teaching award in anesthesiology at Yale in his name.
Our thoughts are with Paul’s wife of 53 years, Norma, and his sons David and Jed and their families. At this time we also remember Paul’s dear son Daniel, who predeceased him and who was a wonderful, wonderful young man that we were honored to know.
Along with the rest of the Yale community, we will miss our friend Paul. People wishing to pay tribute to his memory are encouraged to make a donation to the Daniel B. Barash Scholarship Fund at the University of Colorado.
