Carlos Baena Cagnani, a highly renowned Allergy, Asthma and Immunology scientist, passed away suddenly on December 31st, 2014.
He had been the President of both, WAO and INTERASMA and published extensively in his specialty. Carlos was actively involved in supporting patients with these conditions, and was an important collaborator of FUNDALER in this matter.
He supported the creation of the GAAPP, because he understood the need to appropriately educate patients with asthma and other allergies, driving their awareness that, with adequate treatment, they can live a life free of limitations. His paramount objective was to improve the quality of life for both patients and their families.
Carlos was a great scientist, a great physician and, above all, great man. His early and unexpected passing leaves a significant void; he will be sadly missed.
