Upstate Medical University released this statement on his passing:
“The Upstate Medical University community is deeply saddened at the loss of a true pioneer in field of women’s health. Dr. Richard Aubry has been a mentor to multiple generations of physicians interested in public health, baby’s well-being and safe motherhood. He has been a leader in public health for more than half a century. He has trained hundreds of residents and medical students always with passion and conviction. He was a pioneer in the field of maternal fetal medicine and helped to shape the direction of medical care in obstetrics and Gynecology. He was a skilled diagnostician who developed an amazing bond with patients and a genuine interest in their lives. As a medical community, we have lost one of the best.”
