Memorial Service for Dr. John Pryor
December 30, 2008
As was announced late last week, PENN Medicine has lost a good friend and dear colleague with the death of John “JP” Pryor. Dr. Pryor was working in Iraq as an Army trauma surgeon when he was felled by enemy fire on Christmas Day. John was an exceptional human being who truly lived his values everyday. He felt a special obligation to use his skills to help those serving our country and the many innocent victims of war. Sadly, this admirable trait put him in harm’s way one last time.
