The University of Virginia will hold a memorial service for the man who created its Burn Center. The event will honor Dr. Richard Edlich (pictured right) who died in Brush Prairie, Washington on Christmas Day. He was 74 at the time of his death. Edlich came to UVA in 1972 and spent nearly three decades on the faculty of its medical school. He became the emergency medical services director and helped to set up statewide EMS procedures. Edlich was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1985, and won many awards from the MS Society. Former President Bill Clinton (pictured left) was among the local, state and national leaders who had contact with Edlich. The memorial service for Edlich will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the auditorium of McKim Hall.
