Canadian Medical Association

Halifax; Dalhousie University, 1951; general practice. Died Sept. 21, 2020, aged 93. Survived by 2 children, 4 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. “Caroline was a pioneer, as she was 1 of only 2 women in her medical class at Dalhousie. In a sense she was following in the footsteps of her mother, who was a nurse on the Western Front in WW 1. She worked in public health in Victoria and was involved in the then new vaccination program for polio. She also worked closely with the BC Haida community. In the 1960s and 1970s Caroline worked for the precursor to Health Canada on the regulation of prescription drugs, and for a time she was head of the Bureau of Pharmaceutical Advisory Services.”
