Dr. Robert Butler, who was a true pioneer dedicated to improving the lives of seniors through research and education, passed away early this week.    His leadership was felt not only in the United States but in many countries around the world.

As creator of the International Longevity Center in New York, Dr. Butler was instrumental in the development of ILC affiliates in other countries as well.    You can read about his many accomplishments here.
