On March 6, 2020 we learned the news that the powerhouse behind Bar Keepers Friend, and CEO Emeritus, Dr. Cory SerVaas passed away. We were saddened to learn of this remarkable leader's passing. In addition to guiding the growth of Bar Keepers Friend for decades (while raising five children), Dr. SerVaas also was the Publisher of the Saturday Evening Post and accomplished public health advocate.
In 1976, she founded the nonprofit Benjamin Franklin Literary and Medical Society and its divisions the Saturday Evening Post Society and the Children’s Better Health Institute.
As editor of The Saturday Evening Post, Dr. SerVaas met the world’s leading scientists, physicians, researchers and thinkers, translating complex materials into language readers could easily understand in her columns, features, and numerous books — including Fiber and Bran Cookbook and Ask Dr. Cory.
In the pages of the Post, Dr. SerVaas became a tireless champion of public health and outspoken advocate for preventive medicine on the global stage, spearheading ground-breaking campaigns that forever changed the national dialogue on diet, early detection of disease, genetics, antioxidant and vitamin supplementation, smoking cessation, cancer, mental health, cholesterol, heart disease, exercise, aging, longevity, and technology’s ever-emerging role in the prevention and treatment of disease.
