Canadian Medical Association

Halifax; Dalhousie University, 1995; internal medicine, infectious diseases. Died Aug. 31, 2018, aged 48. Survived by her husband, Randall Tresidder. “Born in Halifax, I was a graduate of Dalhousie medical school, McMaster University residencies in internal medicine and medical microbiology, a fellowship in infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and the Canadian Field Epidemiology Program. I had an amazing career in public health and the only thing I loved more than stamping out disease and pestilence was teaching others how to do the same. As my final act of teaching, after my organs were donated my brain was left to the Maritime Brain Tissue Bank.”
