Professor Jacob (Jack) Canick
28 November 1944 19 May 2013

Jack Canick, a member of the Medical Screening Society and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Medical Screening, died of a cardiac arrest on arrival at Heathrow from Boston. He was on his way to teach on an Intensive Course on Antenatal Screening at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine.

Jack was highly regarded as a teacher and colleague. As a tribute to him and his teaching we have placed on this page the sets of slides he was going to use on the course, together with those he used in several of his lectures.
