Dr. Heimlich graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. and received his M.D. from the Cornell Medical Collage. Dr. Heimlich is best known for his invention of the Heimlich maneuver in 1974 with a team of Jewish Hospital researchers, but that is only one of his many lifesaving discoveries. Dr. Heimlich moved to Deupree House in 2010 and is currently working on a book of his memoirs, titled Heimlich’s Maneuvers.
