Noting the many challenges faced by patients suffering with cystic fibrosis, he established and became first director of New Brunswick’s Cystic Fibrosis Clinic. This was a defining time for Norm as a doctor, for which he was very proud. Over the course of his career, he attended and presented at conferences internationally, furthered his clinical abilities with sabbaticals, and brought the latest treatments to his patients. He also lent his skills in the community as the doctor for Camp Glenburn. Norm was also chief of pediatrics at the Saint John Regional Hospital, where he served for 11 years. Committed to clinical excellence and education, he trained many new doctors in his role as assistant professor of pediatrics at Dalhousie. His community service and commitment to his profession meant people knew him everywhere he went, and he was regularly approached by people on the street, in NB and further afield, who thanked him for his care.”
