Remembering Dr. Shils

 

     
     Maurice Shils, MD

 

 

The Oley Foundation acknowledges the major contribution Maurice Shils, MD, made to the field of nutrition support. Dr. Shils, who passed away in June 2015, was a pioneer in clinical nutrition who helped develop enteral formulas for cancer patients in the sixties, and in 1969 discharged one of the first patients home on parenteral nutrition.

 

Dr. Shils was involved in defining the optimum parenteral adult and pediatric vitamin and mineral formulations, and edited the widely used text Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease. During his lengthy career, he trained many nutrition professionals and played an influencial role in the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.). He will be remembered as a gentleman, a scholar, and above all, as one of the great leaders whose many contributions to nutrition support resulted in the life-saving nourishment Oley consumers depend upon.
