We were saddened to hear the recent passing of Club Melbourne Ambassador Professor Henry Krum of Monash University. Professor Krum's positions at Monash University included Chair of Medical Therapeutics, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Monash Centre of Cardiovascular Research and Education in Therapeutics, Department of Epidemiology Preventive Medicine and Department of Medicine, Consultant Physician based at the Heart Centre, Alfred Hospital and a specialist in heart failure management.

We are grateful for the generous and enthusiastic contribution Professor Krum made to Club Melbourne over the past five years. His contribution to the field of Cardiology and clinical research throughout his career was significant. Prof Krum was pivotal in creating the 1st International 4 Corners of Cardiology 2012 and was also involved in the program of the World Congress of Cardiology 2014, ensuring quality research and professional education was available in Melbourne for younger members of his profession following in his footsteps and his peers. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
