It is with great sadness that we inform you of the loss of Mr. Christian Bourquin, President of the Region Languedoc Roussillon and Chair of MACVIA-LR (Fighting Chronic Diseases for Active and Healthy Ageing in Languedoc Roussillon). The Reference Site of the EIP on AHA, MACVIA-LR, was given his continuous and unwavering support and the university and medical community is going to suffer the loss of this first rate collaboration. Christian Bourquin was a man of courage and one of his many qualities was his skillful ability to listen to others, a vital and precious talent for a man who had chosen to embrace public action. Deeply involved in the Languedoc Roussillon, Christian Bourquin placed the banner of the region on a pedestal. All members of MACVIA-LR join together to pay a unanimous tribute of respect and admiration to Christian Bourquin and present their sincere condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.
