In-Memoriam: John Anderson, Ph.D.

Recommended Posts

We are saddened to announce the passing of ASBMR member John J.B. Anderson, Ph.D. John was an accomplished researcher in the field of calcium and bone metabolism who contributed greatly to our understanding of the non-pharmacologic management of osteoporosis. John is perhaps best known for his work on the effects of calcium intake and physical activity on peak bone mass in young women. John authored nearly one hundred peer reviewed manuscripts and over forty book chapters, continuing his research mentorship after formal retirement through his adjunct professorship with the Gillings School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina. John was also a member of the American Society of Nutritional Sciences, the American College of Nutrition, the American Society for Clinical Nutrition and the International Bone and Mineral Society. John also served on the editorial boards of Journal of American College of Nutrition, Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, Nutrition Research, Nutrition Today, Osteoporosis International and Nutrition and Food Science. John was also a past president of the American College of Nutrition. John also received the Distinguished Service Award of the American Heart Association and the Distinguished Career Award from the American College of Nutrition. We express our sincerest condolences to John’s wife Betsey and this family at this difficult time. Join us in recognizing Dr. Anderson’s contributions to our field by sharing a memory on the ASBMR Website or contributing a donation in his honor.

I have been a member of ASBMR since 1980 and John was one of the first people to welcome me into the society and to support my early efforts. He would listen to my presentations and ideas with great patience and tolerance and was always encouraging. He maintained a close friendship with Cary Cooper, with whom I worked for many years in Galveston.  While I haven't seen him in several years I remember him fondly and am grateful for his role in making me feel at home in the ASBMR.

So sorry to hear of John's passing.  He was so accomplished and yet so humble.  I shall miss him.
