The passing of QOL Pioneer: Dr. Hans Rosling

To QOL/well-being scholars and ISQOLS members:


Prof. Dr. Hans Rosling, a Swedish medical doctor/epidemiologist/QOL researcher, has been a role model among many in the quality-of-life/well-being research community. He certainly was a great hero to many of us. We just received news that he just died. The world has lost a visionary and an inspiration to all who believed and used the science of quality of life and human well-being. He has been the public face of the QOL/well-being research community. We will miss him dearly.
