Canadian Medical Association

Toronto; University of Toronto (U of T), 1951; general practice. Died Aug. 9, 2020, aged 93. Survived by 5 children and 10 grandchildren. “She was a member of the medical staff at the U of T Student Health Service for many years, and her dedication to the health of young women was rewarded with the establishment of a colposcopy unit in 1994, the first of its kind within a university health service in Canada. Mom was highly active in the Medical Alumni at U of T, and was instrumental in bringing back personal interviews at the medical school, thus ensuring caring, communicative graduates. She contributed to the research into the development of the human papillomavirus vaccine and, as if this were not enough, she maintained her own private practice.”
