A memorial service for Ignacio Ponseti will be held on Dec. 6 from 3-5 p.m. in the Coral Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Coralville.

The service celebrates the life of the UI professor emeritus, who developed a non-surgical clubfoot treatment that helps thousands of children and bears his name.

Ponseti died Oct. 18 after a sudden illness. He was 95. He joined the UI faculty in 1944.

Though he retired in 1984, he returned to work in 1986 and continued to treat patients, teach, and conduct research. He was working in his university office just days before his death.

He is survived by his wife, Helena Percas-Ponseti, and his son, Bill Ponseti.

The service is open to the campus community and the public.
