A member of the University of Vermont/Fletcher Allen Health Care faculty since 1993, Steven Grunberg, M.D., professor of medicine and oncologist, was internationally renowned for his work in supportive care for cancer patients. His death on September 22, 2013, was a blow to all who knew him – his family, patients, colleagues, and students. An active member of the Vermont Cancer Center, Grunberg was an outstanding teacher, mentor, researcher and clinician who specialized in lung, head and neck cancers. One of his cancer patients recently published a touching memorial tribute to Grunberg, detailing the breadth and depth of his impact, in “Healthsource,” the Fletcher Allen Health Care blog.
