Dr. David Mymin (May 27, 1929 - July 21, 2021)
Dr. David Mymin was the driving force in establishing the Reh-Fit Centre over 40 years ago.
Dr. Mymin was a cardiologist and passionate proponent of the 'exercise is medicine' movement in the early 1970s. Thanks to his leadership, the Reh-Fit Centre was initially founded in a 250-square foot stress test lab in St. Boniface Hospital before moving to the University of Manitoba in 1975. When the Reh-Fit was established at our present site in 1979, Dr. Mymin served as our first Medical Director and for several years thereafter.
In an impactful career spanning over 50 years, Dr. Mymin served in a number of academic and community leadership roles and made inummerable contributions to his field. Dr. Mymin will be remembered as an outstanding physician, researcher, leader, and champion.
We will be forever grateful for his contributions and the impact he made on the lives of so many. From all of us, thank you for your service.
