Journalist Carles Capdevila, founder and first editor-in-chief of the newspaper Ara, has passed away after a two-year-long battle with cancer. Throughout his career as a journalist, Capdevila remained loyal to his goal of covering matters that have a profound effect on people.

Highly sensitive to social and educational issues, he often used his articles to call attention to the efforts of professionals who work to ease the suffering of people in pain. A proud patron of the class of 2016 for students from the Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and the University Master’s Degree in Nursing and Healthcare Research, in his speech he expressed his profound admiration for this collective, who accompanied him throughout his illness.

We at the University offer his family our heartfelt condolences and ask everyone to keep him in your prayers.
