How Did We Do?

Franklin David Nash, M.D. of Indianapolis passed away last week. Born May 2, 1932 in Brooklyn, New York, he was the son of Dr. David Nasanow and Frances Stich.

A retired Professor of Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine and Professor of Physiology and Biophysics in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, Dr. Nash specialized in Nephrology, with emphasis on hypertension research and teaching. He established and directed an interdisciplinary Specialized Center of Research in Hypertension, one of five so designated and funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health.
He received his Bachelor of Science Degree from Indiana University in 1954, and his M.D. from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1957.

In his initial retirement from academic medicine, he served as an insurance company Medical Director, but then returned to academia as Vice President for Academic Affairs at the Robert M. Palmer, M.D. Institute of Biomechanics. He consulted for Social Security Disability, Medicare, Medicaid, and for the United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine on a NASA contract during the Apollo Moon flights and landings. He was a frequent Visiting Professor at other teaching and research institutions in the U.S. and abroad.

Aware of partisan misuses of STEM in crafting laws detrimental to the American people, he founded the Center for Scientific Analysis of Policy to focus on healthcare policy, biomedical research policy, and water-energy nexus policy.

In recent years, he collaborated closely with Aethlon Medical, developer of the Hemopurifier. He was passionate about the potential for a non-pharmacological reduction of pathogenic agents circulating in the blood as a means of treating such diseases as cancer, HIV, HCV, Ebola, sepsis, and Zika, and as a tool in the diagnosis of CTE.

A lover of the arts, he played double bass to finance his education and continued playing professionally on occasion thereafter. He was also an extremely dedicated and loving father and grandfather.

Frank Nash will be greatly missed by his daughter, Jennifer (Tony) Page of Carmel; son, David (Susan) Nash of Pittsburgh; his three beloved grandchildren, Cody Page, Dylan Page, and Rachel Nash; and former wife, Nancy Wise Nash of Indianapolis; and former wife Julie Slaymaker, of Indianapolis, mother of Jennifer and David.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday from 4pm to 8pm. For more information, contact FrankNashMemorial@icloud.com.
