Hurwitz, Nathaniel G.

Nathaniel G. Hurwitz, M.D. of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was a compassionate doctor, a brilliant theorist, and most importantly a loving husband and father. He died tragically at age 52 in a weather-related multi-vehicle collision on Jan. 15, 2018.

He was born on June 29, 1965, in Bethesda, Maryland, to Aryeh Hurwitz, M.D. and Judith Pfeffer Hurwitz, M.D., and was raised in the Kansas City area.

He is survived by his daughters, Leah and Ariel; spouse, Ivy Hurwitz, Ph.D., all of Albuquerque; mother, Judith Hurwitz of Overland Park, Kansas; and brothers, Michael Hurwitz, M.D., Ph.D. of Woodbridge, Connecticut, and Daniel Aires, M.D., of Mission Hills, Kansas.

Nat was passionate about science and the brain, attained consistently excellent patient outcomes in very difficult settings, and also published original psychiatric research. At the time of his death, Nat was working on a large-scale correlation between suicidality and classes of medications.

Nat was an accomplished singer, songwriter and pianist.

He was also a gifted athlete who wrestled varsity in college, boxed and attained a 4th degree black belt in taekwondo under Master Choon Lee. He met his beloved wife (also a 4th degree black belt) at Choon Lee’s Academy.

More than anything else, Nat was always ready to give everything to help people including family, friends and patients.
