Dr. Janis Audin, AVMA editor-in-chief emeritus, dies

by Stephen Pope, DVM

    SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Janis H. Audin, DVM, AVMA editor-in-chief emeritus, died on April 22, 2009, at the age of 58.

    Audin, who battled pancreatic cancer for 3 years, served as editor-in-chief and director of the AVMA publications division until March 23, 2009, when W. Ron DeHaven, DVM, executive vice president of AVMA, conferred on her the emeritus distinction.

    She worked from the AVMA headquarters until the middle of February before going on medical leave and continued to provide leadership to the AVMA, the association said.

    "Her contributions to the journals, to AVMA and to the profession were profound and we will be forever grateful," DeHaven said. "Even though we will all miss Janis tremendously, let's celebrate and honor her life and realize how fortunate we were to have known her and to have worked with her. Janis Audin's legacy will live on at AVMA."

    In lieu of flowers, Audin requested that memorial donations designated for Animal Health Studies be sent to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.
