Our dear friend and supporter, Willard Osibin M.D., died on November 26 from a massive heart attack. Willard was a national leader within Physicians for Social Responsibility, and was intimately involved in local issues of radioactive contamination, concerning Ward Valley and the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, a few miles from his thriving practice.
In fact, Willard’s gentle but insistent prodding moved the Los Angeles
chapter to begin work on distributing potassium iodine (KI) tablets, (read
more about KI on page 3).
A graduate of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, class of 1953, Dr. Osibin was once a leader within the National Medical Association, but instead moved over to PSR in the 1980’s.
Memorial services were held December 1 at Atascadero Bible Church. His widow, Shirley has asked that donations in his honor be made to PSR.
