In Memory — Anna Worth, Past President of AAHA

    Anna Elizabeth Worth, VMD, died on Saturday, May 16, after a valiant battle with cancer. She was 55 years old.

    "It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we say goodbye to such a compassionate and talented individual," said John Albers, DVM, executive director of AAHA. "AAHA will forever be indebted to Anna's unwavering devotion and leadership to the association and to our profession."

    A 1978 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Worth, with her husband, Bob Bergman, VMD, served as a director and owner of West Mountain Animal Hospital, an AAHA-accredited practice in Shaftsbury, Vermont, for more than 25 years.

    Worth was AAHA president from 2008 to 2009 and had served on the association's board of directors since 2002. She was instrumental in creating the AAHA Helping Pets Fund.

    Worth had an active interest in animal welfare and was a past president of the Society for Veterinary Medical Ethics. The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals presented her with the Veterinarian of the Year Award in 1992.

    In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Anna Worth can be made to the AAHA Helping Pets Fund (www.aahahelpingpets.org) or the Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center.
