  1. I graduated from BUSPH in 2019 and Professor Saitz’s class was by far my favorite. The passion he had for the topic of substance use disorders was palpable. As somebody who comes from a long line of people who have struggled with alcohol use disorder I was really touched by the way he spoke about them but also the way he addressed alcohol misuse head on. I will truly never forget him and the impact he had on my life that one semester. Rest in peace, Professor Saitz and to his family, I am so sorry for your loss.

  2. Dr. Saitz was a founding faculty for our clinical research training program at BU since its inception in 2019 and while I coordinated the program. I just learned now of his passing and am deeply shocked and saddened at the loss of such a wonderful and dedicated academic researcher and physician performing amazing and relevant work for our Boston area! May he rest in peace and his incredible life’s legacy endure!
