Article on Dr. Jacobs highlights great legacy

The Dec. 7 front-page News article on Dr. Lawrence D. Jacobs was a fitting tribute to a great doctor and humanitarian. Because of Jacobs’ brilliance, passion and concern for the health and welfare of multiple sclerosis patients, he discovered that interferon could be essential in their treatment. As a result, interferon has made a difference in the care of thousands of people throughout the world.

By Jacobs’ side until his death in 2001 was his devoted wife of 36 years, Pamela, and their five children (Christopher, Luke, Larry Jr., Jessica and Lizzie) who knew that his legacy would always make them proud.
