Dear RPS members!

The year 2020 marks the 100th birthday of Dr. Robert H. Heptinstall on July 22.

All RPS presidents sent Heppy the below birthday note and we encourage all RPS members whose careers have been touched by the defining icon of our field to do the same.

The contributions Dr. Heptinstall made to renal pathology were defining, guiding, visionary, and inspiring to all of us. Our field would not be where it is today without the foundational contributions made by Dr. Heptinstall.

Please join us in sending our best wishes and congratulations to Dr. Heptinstall for his 100th birthday!
