Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of Richard Rockefeller, Ed.M., M.D., who died on June 13, 2014, when the single-engine plane that he was piloting crashed outside of Westchester County Airport, and extends its deepest sympathies and condolences to his family.
Through his vast philanthropic network, passionate public speaking on the right for access to medicines, and field assignments in Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia, Richard was instrumental to the founding of MSF in the United States.
