Elizabeth Macfarlane, has passed away at age 93. She was born on March 7, 1918 at Stafford Springs in Connecticut and passed away on April 8, 2011 on Long Island in New York. A graduate of the University of Connecticut in 1939, she received her Masters of Public Health (in Biostatistics) from the University of Michigan's School of Public Health in 1950.
