In Appreciation of Elizabeth Genovese, M.D


Winnifred Cutler, Ph.D. bids farewell to her long-time friend, colleague and coauthor, Elizabeth Genovese, M.D


My friend, Elizabeth Genovese passed away April 9th, 2010 after a courageous 15-month battle with metastatic cancer whose origin was never defined.

Elizabeth served without compensation on the Athena Institute for Women’s Wellness research advisory board and also coauthored a number of scientific papers with me, including a major monograph for Internal Medicine physicians so well regarded that it was republished by CV Mosby as a two part monograph for gynecologists.

She also contributed by invitation to symposia for specialists in reproduction and psychiatry. She made significant intellectual contributions to synthesizing the research literature in the areas listed by reference below.

Dr. Genovese received her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and her MBA in health care from Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Her accomplishments and contributions to healthcare include serving as medical director of IMX Medical Management Services, teaching as an adjunct assistant professor of emergency medicine at Penn, and working as the newsletter editor for American Academy of Disability Evaluating Physicians.

Her intellectual output was dazzling and she was an extraordinary colleague. Elizabeth was an astonishing force, a contributor to our work on women's wellness, a scholar, a physician, and a loving mother to her children. I will miss her.
